Urijah Faber-Michael McDonald Locked In As UFC On FOX 9 Co-Main

Two bantamweights looking to get another crack at the title will square off in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 9, as Urijah Faber meets Michael McDonald.

The card goes down in December from Sacramento, with it airing on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.

Faber and McDonald are both friends, but they seemed interested in testing their skills vs. one another after recent wins. Faber, a former WEC champion, remained unbeaten in non-title fights by besting Iuri Alcantara, while McDonald stopped Brad Pickett.

The bout is the only one announced so far, though officials are working on Anthony Pettis-TJ Grant for the UFC lightweight title.
