Who is Michael McDonald again?


I keep forgettin' about him. Phone Post

he upper upper cutted miguel torres to lalaloopsy land and as far as this fight goes barao better overall striker with his distance and kicks butttttt you gotta love mcdonalds hand speed and his boxing to go with it this could be a factor if he can get close cuz IMO mcdonalds has faster hands then barao
This, though he's young and untested outside the Torres fight.

In addition to what is stated here, the guy has fucking scary knockout power. He hits so hard that you get nervous when he fights at the eventuality of a fight in which his opponent (see the Alex Soto or Miguel Torres fight) who makes the mistake of standing and banging with him.

Exciting as holy hell Phone Post
Yes he's very untested as far as his quality of competition goes, Torres has dropped off a lot from what he was.

Cole Escavado fought both and said he thought McDonald is better than Barao though for what it's worth. Phone Post

McDonald is a legit prospect for sure and we'll find out just whether he's in the division's elite when he fights Barao!

Mcdonald can knock anyone out with his hands and most of his wins are ko/tko.... Barao usually needs his knees or kicks to hurt you and most of his wins are submission/decision.

Mcdonald has a great shot at winning this.  I hope he wins... we need some excitement in the lighter weight classes and we need more americans with belts.  The brazilians are taking over.

Looks like Manuwa vs. Diabate.

Would be surprised if any of the other three came to fruition. Nelson and Hathaway will be on the bill but it's highly unlikely against one another.

He got ko'd by MM in the rematch though. He was just giving his opinion of them based on when he fought them. That was easily Barao's most lacklustre performance since joining the WEC Phone Post

Ogle-Grispi is a lose and get cut match. Hope Ogle wins since he won his last fight and is a good guy that you can root for

So, are you saying Barao did not try hard in the Escovedo fight or was Escovedo slowing him down too much?
