Brad Pickett vs. Michael McDonald Set for UFC on FOX Sports 1 #1 Co-Main Event

 

A bantamweight clash between two fan favorites is set for the co-main event of UFC on FOX Sports 1 #1 as Brad Pickett (23-7) faces off with Michael McDonald (15-2).

The bout was announced in the shadow of today’s main event announcement for the same show.

Pickett is coming off of a close victory of Mike Easton in early April at UFC on FUEL TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi and is looking to start a winning streak in hopes to earn a rematch wit Renan Barao, the division’s interim champion.

McDonald is coming off of his own fight with Barao as the two went to war at UFC on FUEL TV: Barao vs. McDonald back in February in a fight that saw McDonald mature as a fighter while losing in the fourth by submission.

Now, two top bantamweights have a chance to gain a solid victory over notable foes on a big stage during a highly-anticpated event.

    Damn,kind of like when the two neighborhood pitbulls escape and are standing nose to nose. I could see McDonald coming forward precisely and creating a ko if Pickett doesn’t have the chin for one of his ridiculous counters. Anything could happen.

    this will be a FIGHT, its easily fight of the year material.. Brad Pickett will win by 2nd or 3rd round knockout.. hopefully.
