Torres vs. McDonald Added to UFC 145 - Six-Fight Main Card

UFC 145: JONES vs. EVANS NOW A SIX-FIGHT CARD
Miguel Torres vs Michael McDonald added to main card
One of the most anticipated UFC events of the year just got better. Emanating live from the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA, on April 21, UFC 145 will now be a special six-fight Pay-Per-View event.

The bantamweight collision between Miguel Torres and Michael McDonald - a classic crossroads fight, pitting a former world bantamweight champion against a 21-year-old young gun – will now be featured on the PPV portion of the card.

“Fighting on Pay-Per-View is special to me,” said Torres. “I would watch the big boxing cards with my father as a kid, and my father would well up with pride and emotion when guys like Julio Cesar Chavez fought. I'd never seen my father show so much emotion and I am proud to become an extension of that great Mexican fighting legacy in the UFC.”

McDonald said: “I think Miguel Torres is definitely the most significant opponent I've ever faced on a business perspective. Now it’s my chance to prove to myself that I can do what I think I can do on a huge Pay-Per-View event.”

The full six-fight card now reads:
Lightweight Bout: Mark Bocek Vs Matt Wiman
Featherweight Bout: Mark Hominick Vs Eddie Yagin
Bantamweight Bout: Miguel Torres Vs Michael McDonald
Heavyweight Bout: Brendan Schaub Vs Ben Rothwell
Welterweight Bout: Rory MacDonald Vs Che Mills
UFC Light Heavyweight Title: Jon Jones Vs Rashad Evans
