Before the fifth round began, MacDonald was checked by a cageside doctor who forced him to stand on his leg to prove he could continue. He was able to pass the test, and then he was able to score a takedown on Lima in the final round, which helped him get the victory.
After the fight, MacDonald’s leg was so bad that he had to be carried into the locker room. He joked in his postfight interview that it felt like he had another person growing inside his leg.
