Q- Tell the fans your name?
A-My name is Unstoppable Marc McDonald, I love my nick name because it stands for more than a record, it means no matter what nobody can stop my dreams only I can and I don’t ever doubt myself, which makes me unstoppable in my book
A-I am 24 years old I have been fighting for about 5-6 years now
A-I am currently 3-2; my amateur record was 10-3 where I held 3 titles
A-I’m from Amelia Ohio, for those that don’t know we are near Cincinnati
Q- What gym do you train with?
A- G force MMA Owner, Coach, and Manger Ron Gableman
Q- Favorite training partner?-
A-We have lots of talent in our gym, whom all make amazing training partners, to the veterans and the newcomers, we all train hard and I love training with all that I can.
Q- BJJ/ TKD/ Wresting experience? belt level?
A-I wrestled in high school, when I graduated I trained BJJ for about a year to 2 years, then I found my way to Gforce MMA where I have turned my game to new levels, I would say I’m more experienced on the ground, but my standup is as good as any body’s out there, let’s just say I’m not afraid to stay on my feet any more, I used to go for the takedown as soon as a could, can’t say the same now.
Q- When did you make your MMA debut?
A-I believe I debuted in February of 2012, and I made my Pro debut September of 2015.
Q- What made you start training MMA?
A-I began training right out of high school, I actually started MMA, I think because I missed wrestling so much had to find something to fuel the fire.
Q- How do you feel like you match up with you Opponent?
A-As always I take the tough fights, and Maness is one of the best out there and I’d love to take a swing at his undefeated record, I honestly think I match up well, and I plan to bring my A game and I know he will do the same, Its going to be one hell of a fight !!
Q- What has been you most memorable moment of you career?
A-I’d say I’ve had tons of awesome time in this sport, I just love putting on good fights, and leaving it all in the cage. I’d say holding 3 titles as an ammy was a big high light and I think the biggest is becoming a pro fighter
Q- What is your favorite MMA moment as a fan?
A-I’ve seen allot of amazing things, one of my favorite times was when Smoking Joe Pegg from our Team Gforce MMA fought Jeremy Pender from Vision MMA and Joe won by choke in the first round, I’ve never seen such an exciting fight!
Q- When you’re not in the gym training what keeps you busy?
A- Well I feel like a fitness freak I’m always working out and staying in shape, I work in a Jail as a Corrections Officer which that alone soaks up allot of time, but I do normal things like here recently I’ve been getting back into baseball. I just live life and have fun
Q- Anything you would like to say to your opponent for May 27th?
A-All I have to say to my opponent is good luck on your weight cut, I will see you then, let’s have fun and put on a show!!
Marc McDonald and Nathan Maness will step inside the cage on Saturday May 27th at the Radisson Cincinnati Riverfront in Covington Kentucky at Premier MMA Championship
