He's not looking ahead, but...

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight "Athlete" Jason MacDonald would love to avoid a "Filthy" performance against Tom Lawlor at the UFC on FUEL TV 3 event tomorrow night (May 15, 2012) from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.

Because UFC 149 in Calgary in just around the corner.

The longtime veteran would love to have a "storybook ending" to his career and retire at the "Aldo vs. Koch" pay-per-view (PPV) event on July 21 in front of friends and family, but knows he still has to overcome his hungry foe tomorrow night on FUEL TV.

From his UFC interview:

"I've just been taking it one fight at a time for the past couple fights. I'm not thinking 10 fights ahead because I know I won't be fighting 10 more fights ahead, so I'm really just trying to be in the moment, taking it each fight as it comes, trying to make it a good fight, make it a good showing and once I get past that, then I'll start worrying about Calgary. For me, I always do better when I have a whole bunch of fights in a short amount of time. That's when I've had the best runs in my career, is fighting back-to-back-to-back, so if I can have a quick turnaround from Virginia to Calgary, then that would be the end of the line for me. I would close the book on my career at home in front of my friends and family. It would really be a storybook ending."
