UFC Books McDonald vs. Eduardo For UFC 139

September 27, 2011 10:01 pm by Pedro Carrasco

A bantamweight bout has just been added to the UFC’s November trip to San Jose in the form of Michael McDonald vs. Johnny Eduardo.

UFC 139 is set to take place on November 19th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. With the original heavyweight title fight headliner between champ Cain Velasquez and Junior Santos moving from UFC 139 to UFC on FOX 1 the organization has decided to go with a non-title affair between Dan Henderson and “Shogun” Rua as the evenings featured attraction.

At the age of 20, Michael McDonald comes in as the UFC’s youngest fighter. He was last seen in action at UFC 130 taking out Chris Cariaso via decision. With a record of 13-1 he has not tasted defeat since his 2009 loss to Cole Escovedo; it was a loss he avenged in 2010 under the WEC banner.

Johny Eduardo is a Muay Thai specialist who was last seen on the “UFC Rio” card in a losing effort against Raphael Assuncao in his UFC debut. The loss snapped an eleven-fight win streak.
