UFC 145 Gets Even Better with Addition of Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald

Publish date:

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.”

Main Card (Pay-per-view):

Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans
Rory MacDonald vs. Che Mills
Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub
Michael McDonald vs. Miguel Torres
Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin
Mark Bocek vs. Matt Wiman
