"It all happened so fast," he said. "I don’t know if I can really put words to the atmosphere that was there Saturday night. I never in a million years thought that I ever would be fighting or that mixed martial arts in general would be on that type of stage. Even going into the Bell Centre in Montreal, where the three biggest fights were prior to this, there seems to be an end to the people. (Laughs) At some point you can look and see where the people end. But on Saturday night, it was a never ending sea of people. Everywhere you looked, as high as you could look and in every direction you looked, there were thousands and thousands of people. And there were big screens, taller than some of the arenas we’ve fought in (Laughs), and it really was amazing." "The one thing I told myself was that I fight best when I’m enjoying myself, I’m relaxed, and I’m having a good time. I said regardless of what happens out there tonight, I’m going to enjoy this moment. So from the moment they started my music to walk out, I was enjoying myself. I had a smile on my face and I was relaxed. Then I got to the Octagon, and when that door closes and Bruce Buffer takes over, it really is business as usual. I felt comfortable, and I knew that I was better than Ryan Jensen. I knew that I had faced better competition than Ryan Jensen, and if I stayed focused and fought my fight, I would come away with a good victory. Of course you can’t predict it happening that fast, but it went as planned." Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald talking about his UFC 129 experience
