MacDonald vs. Jensen Wiki Update Wiki

The third bout of UFC 129, streamed live on Facebook.com, featured Jason MacDonald taking on Ryan Jensen. MacDonald came into the bout 5-6 in prior UFC fights, and a veteran fighter with a combined 24-14 overall MMA record. Jensen came into the bout 2-5 in prior UFC bouts, and an overall MMA record of 15-7.

Jensen came forward swinging big early, but MacDonald immediately took the fight down, popped out of a guillotine attempt, and took Jensen's back. MacDonald began working for a triangle choke off of his back, tying up Jensen's right arm trapped as he slowly worked his legs into position. MacDonald finally was able to completely lock in the choke, held steady as Jensen attempted to lift and slam out, and a moment later forced the tapout from Jensen.

Speaking to Joe Rogan during the post-fight interview, MacDonald commented, "I'll tell you what, hello Canada I love you guys... I was looking for triangle before I was off his back, he left his arm in there... the slam is not a good escape for the triangle and there's the reason why."
