Just moments after the bout was rumored on UFC Tonight, the official UFC Twitter page announced Urijah Faber-Michael McDonald for UFC on FOX 9’s co-main event in December.
The card goes down from Sacramento, so the addition of Faber was nearly a given.
Faber and McDonald are both coming off wins, and the two seemed fine with throwing down against one another in the near future despite a friendship existing.
So far, it is the only fight announced for the card, but officials are working on Anthony Pettis-TJ Grant for the UFC lightweight title in the main event slot.
