Michael McDonald Suggests He and Miguel Torres Are 'Kinda the Same'

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

ATLANTA -- UFC bantamweight contender Michael McDonald spoke to MMA Fighting at today's UFC 145 pre-fight open workouts about his bout on Saturday with former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres. McDonald elaborated on his previous comments that Torres abandoned his style of fighting after losing to Brian Bowles. He also discusses whether athleticism is rewarded in MMA fighting as much as it does other sports. The rising prospect further explains why he believes he and Torres are similar, tries to understand why oddsmakers are having a hard time forecasting an outcome in this fight, and why staying with the same MMA team is critical to his success.
