Renan Barao-Michael McDonald Official For UFC On Fuel TV 7

Interim UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao will defend his title in London, taking on Michael McDonald at UFC on Fuel TV 7. UFC officials confirmed the fight recently.

The card takes place February 16 from Wembley Arena in England. Barao and McDonald will serve as the headliner.

Barao (29-1) claimed the interim title with a decision victory over Urijah Faber earlier this year. He had been hoping to unify the belts with Dominick Cruz, but Cruz was forced to undergo a second knee surgery, keeping him out of action for several more months.

McDonald (15-1) was one of the finalists to compete for the interim title after he defeated Miguel Torres. However, a hand injury kept McDonald on the sidelines.
