Michael McDonald-Brad Pickett Set For UFC On FS1

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.
