Bantamweights Michael McDonald and Brad Pickett will meet at UFC on FS1: Sonnen vs. Shogun this August. The event goes down from the TD Garden in Boston.
McDonald (15-2) is coming off a loss to interim UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao that snapped his recent win streak.
Pickett (23-7) topped Mike Easton in his most recent appearance, and also owns a submission loss to Barao on his resume.
The bout will likely be part of the prelims, which are also expected to air on FOX Sports 1 August 17.
Also, a light heavyweight battle between Ovince St. Preux (13-5) and Cody Donovan (8-2) will take place that night.
St. Preux has won two straight, while Donovan earned a win over Nick Penner in his Octagon debut to close out 2012.
