Jason MacDonald Fight - UFC 83
Hey everyone,

Take a look at a fellow CrossFitter Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald (and soon to be Affiliate) at his fight in Montreal - UFC 83 - this past weekend.

[URL=""][/URL] NOT WFS - unless elbows to the face are deemed ok.

Jay trains ridiculously hard and is a great guy. I have really enjoyed working with him and can't wait till he signs his next fight so we can get going full bore again!!! If you look close at his shorts you will see my logo.

I also saw "CrossFit SLA" written on Rich Clementi's shirt...although he beat one of the Canadian fighters he put on a great fight and I cheered for him when his arm was raised.

Kim, what was the deal with the ref? Did he start to call it then stop? Wasn't like dude was going to bounce back from a half dozen elbows to the temple.

Re: Jason MacDonald @ UFC 83
I talked to Jay after the fight and he said the ref came in (clearly) but didn't stop him. He thought it was over and thats why he stopped and looked up but the ref said it wasn't over. So like he is supposed to he kept going. Bad reffing I guess.

When the ref talked about it after the fight he apologized for not stopping it when he came in the first time because it made Jay look like a total sh*thead and cheapshot artisit.

Put it this way...Jay won knock out of the night and if he had fouled Doerkson he wouldn't have got the bonus.

how's the shoulder after that nasty Kimura?

Re: Jason MacDonald @ UFC 83
I actually thought he was being considerate for hesitating as the ref came in. Ref should be more clear in actions for everyones safety, and should have stopped it at first, although it did happen quickly.

Brutal elbows! No idea how he escaped though ... impressive stuff!

What was up with the extra shots after the ref stopped the fight?
