    UFC 77: MACDONALD-OKAMI SLATED

    [​IMG]
    By Loretta Hunt ([email protected])

    Canadian middleweight Jason MacDonald (19-8) has verbally agreed to an Oct. 20 bout against Yushin Okami (20-4) at UFC 77, scheduled for the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Alberta native expects contracts to be signed shortly.

    The likely bout will mark MacDonald’s second bid in the Buckeye State. On March 3, the red-headed former prison correctional officer was unsuccessful in supplanting former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin’s first visit back to the Octagon since losing his crown to current title-holder Anderson Silva (19-4 ) at UFC 64 in Oct. 2006. MacDonald’s corner halted the bout after the second round when his vision became too impaired from Franklin’s flurries.

    MacDonald earned a slick TKO referee stoppage over “The Ultimate Fighter 3” vet Rory Singer (12-7) at June 16’s UFC 72 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Okami faced Franklin on the same card, dropping a unanimous decision to the Ohio native after three rounds.

    Okami's striking couldn't be much worse.

    It could if his name is Jason MacDonald. JayMac's striking is fucking awful, Okami's isn't that bad.

    Okami's striking is better than MacD's, but that's not saying too much

    Naw man, Okami is pretty bad. He fights like a gimp with only one arm. I loved watching him dispose of Swick and was excited for the Franklin fight, but rich made him look like such a fucking dullard, and I don't think very much of Franklin.

    MacD throws punches from his shoulder

    Okami at least has power

    Mac's hands are so slow it is scary. And Okami may not be a fantastic striker, but I would not say he is bad by any means. Franklin didn't actually punish him much at all on their feet and that was Rich's world. Far more repsected striekrs have taken far more severe beatings by Rich. Okami may not be exciting, but he is not bad.
