During the post-fight show on FUEL TV Tuesday night it was reported that Jason MacDonald would retire. However, "The Athlete" is now doing so, according to the UFC's Canadian Twitter account.
"To set the record straight following UFC on FUEL 3, (Jason MacDonald) never said he's retiring. Tough break last night. Hope to see him back soon," the UFC's Twitter accout posted.
MacDonald suffered a second consecutive loss to Tom Lawlor via knockout in one of the main card bouts at UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier. The Canadian is looking to land a spot at UFC 149 in Calgary near his home before hanging it up.
