On December 30, Jason "the athlete" Macdonald will face Chris Leban! Will Macdonald crush Leban or will Leban avenge Ed Herman's loss? My money will be on Macdonald!

It would make much more sense to have Kendall Grove vs. Jason MacDonald. They matchup waaaaay better. How does Leben go from almost being the #1 contender to fighting a newcomer on the bottom of the ladder anyway?
Are you really that eager to see Silva vs. Leban 2? I think that says it all! Also Kendall Grove wants Rory Singer for some odd reason!

O no haha. I'm just saying that UFC doesn't do a great job with their matchups. They'll give Grove Rory to fight because it will be an easy win, and they prolly think Leben is too much for McDonald, otherwise, I can't figure out how they pick these matchups. They should be picked by where they are on the ladder, Jason and Chris aren't on the same level right now. Jason and Kendal are, and Jason is the only guy left for Kendal to fight that is close to his height. But they are afraid Jason will beat their other golden boy like he did Ed.

I like MacDonald, he's very athletic and his ground game looks technically sound. On the feet, I think Leben wins this pretty easily, but on the ground it's pretty close. I'd give the advantage to MacDonald, but I don't know much about Leben's grappling. It's supposed to be really good.

My money's on the Athlete, just because I don't like Leben and I don't think he's a good fighter, but he always has a shot, that's the great thing about his hands.

Not only are Leben and Herman both from Team Quest but Leben was Hermans corner for his fight with Kendell plus there both overrated. Im hoping Macdonald wins this fight but you can never really count Leben out unless he's fighting some world class striker (Silva) he gets KO's with one punch by swinging around. He has hands of stone this'll be a tough fight for Macdonald but if he plays it smart and takes it to the floor he can probably dictate the fight. Im defiantly not counting Leben out though.

I've only seen Macdonald fight Ed Herman, but he looked damn good in that fight. Plus, he is not really all that much of a newcomer, sure he has only fought in the UFC once, but he has fought a lot of UFC guys in the past. He has lost to Patrick Cote, shonie carter, marvin eastman, kalib starnes, and bill mahood.

Leben has done a damn good job in the UFC. His only loss was against the new UFC middleweight champion. Why is this his first PPV? Why does MacDonald get a PPV after his first UFC fight? It is also an undercard fight. Just glad Chris finally gets a PPV. I still think if he wins the final fights in his contract he is not gonna be back in the UFC.

They are both team quest guys aren't they? Well herman is anyway.

I like Quest and Herman, but I think McDonald leaves with the win in this fight

Looking at some of those names means he really isn't all that good. :confused:

Yeah no shite, but he is on a 5 fight winning streak.
...and I am actually impressed he has already fought 6 times in 2006.

If Leben shapes up i think he will win but if he comes in like he did against Santiago he will probably lose. That fight had one of the shittiest standup ive seen in the ufc lately exept for when Cruz came in

It does seam a little unfair that Leban has to fight McDonald. Leban has been fighting alot of top noch competion. While McDonald is a new commer to the UFC. And he has only beaten the most overrated fighter to come out of TUF.

Still I think it will be a close fight. Leban fights are usally close.
