Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

Jason MacDonald is one resilient dude. He suffered a broken tibia and fibula back at UFC 113, but refused to be taken from the Montreal cage on a stretcher. He walked to the locker room to the night, so it should come as no surprise that the UFC veteran stormed back less than 12 months later to post a win over Ryan Jensen in fight No. 3 at UFC 129 in Toronto.

Less than 10 seconds into the fight, MacDonald worked a single-leg takedown. Jensen went down and tried to work a guillotine choke, but he was no match for the slick ground game of MacDonald.

The Canadian quickly transitioned to take Jensen's back. It was academic from there. Jensen's right arm was trapped.

MacDonald had the option of going for a triangle choke or armbar. He went with the triangle. Jensen lifted MacDonald off the ground and tried to slam his way out. That was an awful move, it only help MacDonald lock it on tighter. Jensen tapped at 1:37 of the first.
