McDonald: "I haven't had sex in over three years"

McDonald:
December 4th 2013

UFC bantamweight Michael McDonald made an interesting confession when he appeared recently on KMRQ Rock 96.7 radio’s ‘Bueller and Brent’ show.

Among various questions, host Joey Bueller asked McDonald what he does about sex during a training camp. Many fighters believe that going without sex for their six to ten week camp benefits their athletic performance.

“Do you cut sex out before a fight?” Bueller asked him.

“I’ve actually been abstinent from sex for about 3 and a half years now,” McDonald replied. Momentary silence then Bueller cried, “So he’s gonna kick some ass! This is why you’ve been on such a tear!”

“It’s very arguable,” McDonald responded.

McDonald is 22, so his period of abstinence dates back to around the age of 19. He faces Urijah Faber at UFC on FOX 9 on December 14 and if he wins he almost certainly finds himself in title contention.

Is the sacrifice worth it or is it too much of an extreme measure?

    A wise choice. Destined to be a great man if his reasons are pure.

    That's silly. There have been studies showing no link to any chemical differences in the body after a certain time after sex (less than 24 hours as I recall). So it's just a placebo to get you into a certain head space. Which means you can just choose to be in the head space if you wish. And just because he said "3 years no sex" he's probably building killer forearm strength....
    It can only be detrimental as you walk around thinking about sex instead of fighting.

    ACTUALLY. it has been shown that there is no noticable rise in testosterone up to 7 days without ejaculating. But that 7th day does it. so.....quit projecting homie and get your facts straight That's silly. There have been studies showing no link to any chemical differences in the body after a certain time after sex (less than 24 hours as I recall). So it's just a placebo to get you into a certain head space. Which means you can just choose to be in the head space if you wish.
