Macdonald Defeats Doerksen for UCW 3 Upset
Jason "the Athlete" Macdonald defeated top-ranked Canadian middleweight Joe Doerksen this past Saturday, October 23rd in Winnipeg, Manitoba at Ultimate Cage Wars 3. Macdonald pulled off the upset victory in front of Doerksen’s hometown fans by submitting his opponent in the fourth round via rear naked choke.
Macdonald’s victory marks his second consecutive win in a row, as the Athlete also defeated another highly regarded Winnipeg fighter, Chris Fontaine, with the same move at September’s Maximum Fighting Championships 8. Previously, Macdonald had dropped four fights in a row against solid opposition in Jason Brilz, Matt Horwich, Marvin Eastman and Shonie Carter. The losses to Eastman, Brilz and Carter were all by judges’ decision, while Horwich submitted Macdonald by armbar at the Extreme Fighting Championships 3 in October 2004. Macdonald appears to be settling into his new weight division nicely, a move to middleweight that the Red Deer native made when he fought Carter at TKO 21.
Despite hometown favorite Doerksen losing the main event fight to Macdonald, the 2,500 fans that attended UCW 3 were treated to a four-round, back and forth headliner fight that saw both fighters nearly finish the fight before it’s eventual stoppage.
