MacDonald needs surgery for leg injury


During the first UFC 113 prelim bout Jason Macdonald landed a right shin to the head of Salter, but his opponent John Salter grabbed his leg and took him to the mat. During the takedown, MacDonald was based on this left leg, and it snapped. When McDonald yelled in pain referee Dan Miragliotta ended the bout in Salter's favor, at 2:42 of the first round.

UFC President, Dana White touched on the incident during the post-fight press conference, saying:

“I swear to God, I was back in my room when that happened, and as soon as he went down – I saw that happen before [the referee] stopped the fight – and it reminded me of ‘Bang’ Ludwig. I said, ‘Oh, God.’ He went down – not as bad as ‘Bang’ folded, but same thing. I knew that wasn’t going to be good.”

Now McDonald reports via twitter:


  1. Broken tibia and fibia and dislocated ankle! Surgery tomorrow night.....

I hope they keep JMac on the roster and give him another fight. He's always entertaining and shouldn't have been cut in the first place.

Damn. Cut from the UFC but gets the call and he steps up to the plate. And now because injured that results in a loss that the UFC probably won't pick him up again; double damn. Get better Jason. Heal up and get back at it. Show them an even better Jason MacDonald. The best to you and your family.

 That really sucks, I was looking forward to seeing MacDonald make another go in the UFC. Always a classy guy, hope he heals quick and gets back in the cage.
