It'll be huge if he wins, will he? Doubt it. Franklin is hungry and a very good fighter. I wouldn't mind seeing MacDonald vs Marquardt however.

mcdonald has a slick ground game but his standup isnt too hot and his takedowns are average.

rich is a hungrey brutal fighter who shoudl have no problem ko'ing mcodnald plus a bb in bjj so if it goes to the ground mcdonald wont get shit.

I honestly am giving McDonald very little chance to win this. Why? Because I'm realistic. Yay, he beat a fairly good MW and tough guy in Leben. But, is a win over Ed "The Fuse Burned Out" Herman really that great?

Just like to leave this post saying I'm glad Ed Herman won his last fight. He has a lot of charisma and I love to watch him (even if it's to see if he loses.)

I dont give Mcdonald much of a chance IF he does pull out the upset he should fight Nate and the winner of that = title shot. I really think everyone in the MW division is going to be ruined by Nate over the next year!

Pretty much anyone that can beat Franklin will be a name, specially with wins already in the UFC.

Like the majority, I'm going with Franklin because I believe in him alot more but on the other hand, J-rock is Canadian and I don't like siding against Canada

The odds are against him, but I'm betting on MacDonald. I usually don't bet on Canadian fighters, because I bet on the Loiseau v Franklin matchup, but I have a good feeling about MacDonald.

I don't really think he has a shot at Anderson Silva, but neither does anyone else in the UFC middleweight division, except for maybe Marquardt (who doesn't really match up well with the Thai) and Swick (who will only win if he gets lucky).

Anyway, MacDonald would be a good #1 contender and I hope he does beat Franklin.

looking at thins realistically, rich wins. looking at things on how i want them to turn out, Macdonald wins. But i dont think i would mind seeing rich get his face re arragned again by Silva. I do want Swick to get a title shot though, i would have rather seen swick vs franklin, and macdonald get a one more fight before going for the title. I think Macdonald should seriously work on his stand up so he can come close to hanging with silva or at least survive for a bit and then take him down and try and do something.

Favourite fighters:

1. Mirko Cro Cop
2. Rampage Jackson
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Anderson Silva
5. Mark Hunt
