The welterweight bout MMA fans have been clamoring for has been rebooked for the UFC’s fifth-stint on FOX TV set for December 8.
Originally scheduled for UFC 152, Penn vs. MacDonald was forced into a holding pattern after MacDonald announced a training injury (cut) and was forced to withdraw from the bout.
Now the two welterweights will square off on the big stage this December when the UFC returns to FOX.
Headlined by a main event between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz, UFC on FOX 5 will go down at a yet to be announced venue on December 8. The co-main event of the evening features a light-heavyweight bout between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Alexander Gustafsson.Tags: featured, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
