Keith Jardine and Jason MacDonald are coming off the biggest wins of their respective careers. Hear their thoughts tonight on MMAWeekly Radio at 6pm PST / 9pm EST.
Jardine was the underdog coming into the fight against the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s rising star Forrest Griffin… that’s the way he likes it. Both were competitors on popular reality series The Ultimate Fighter, but Griffin’s star was burning a bit brighter. After Saturday night, things look to be changing. Jardine fought a patient fight and took full advantage when he stunned Griffin late in the first round, followed him to the mat and rained down blows until the fight was stopped.
Chris Leben was another Ultimate Fighter veteran whose UFC star was shining bright. MacDonald was a near miss for the same season one that Leben rose to notoriety on. Saturday night, he showed why he should have also been on that first season, as he weathered an early storm by Leben only to secure a fight ending guillotine choke late in the second round. With his first UFC win over Leben’s stable mate and fellow Ultimate Fighter veteran Ed Herman, MacDonald is climbing the middleweight ranks, now 2-0 in the UFC.
Hear what both Jardine and MacDonald have to say about their fights and futures when they join Damon & Jeff live tonight at 6pm PST / 9pm EST on MMAWeeklyRadio.com.
