What do you do when you have two middleweights who suck major balls on their feet? Throw them up against eachother and see what happens. Thus is my reasoning for the newly minted Demian Maia vs Jason MacDonald fight, slated for UFC 87.
Mind you, I’m perfectly willing to admit that my opinion of these two’s striking is tainted by the fact that I’m comparing them to Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva. It’s to the point where I look at every middleweight fighter in terms of how badly Rich and Andy would kick their asses, which isn’t really fair. Still, it’s hard to care about all these guys who’ll never be real contenders scrambling down at the bottom for 3rd and 4th place.
