Canadian UFC Middleweight Jason MacDonald has inked a new deal with the UFC. The top middleweight made the announcement on his Sportsnet.ca blog. MacDonald, who holds a 5-3 since debuting in the UFC Octagon in October 2006 holds notable wins over Chris Leben, Jason Lambert, and Ed Herman.
From his blog:
I signed a new contract with the UFC this week. It's a new four-fight deal, so I'll be looking forward to four more fights in the UFC and hopefully climbing my way to the top of the division.
On the next few cards there are quite a few middleweight matchups, So it will be interesting to see who they match me up with next.
My gut feeling is I'm going to fight Michael Bisping, win or lose in his upcoming bout. I have no particular reason for that. Nobody has said anything to lead me to believe that. I just see that happening. But then again Alessio Sakara just had a good knockout so maybe they'll think that is a good matchup, another striker vs. grappler matchup.
