McDonald, Maia Added To UFC 87

Jason McDonald

One more fight has been added to the UFC 87 event as according to, UFC middleweight Jason McDonald (20-9) has confirmed that he will participate in UFC 87 with Demian Maia (7-0) as his opponent; the event will take place on August 9 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN.  As expected McDonald has predicted a victory over Maia, adding, “Time and time again … good mixed martial artists have been able to defeat high-level jiu-jitsu guys.” 

McDonald, whose last win came over Joe Doerksen last April, says he has lots of respect for what Maia has done in the jiu jitsu field but he also said that guys in BJJ have had difficulty going up against true mixed martial artists.  Maia may be one of the exceptions here as he is undefeated, with victories over Ryan Jensen and Ed Herman.  This should be one of the better fights on the card as their contrasts in fighting styles alone will make this matchup worth watching.
