With all that’s gone on in recent weeks, the fact that Michael McDonald is about to return to the cage has been kind of lost in the mix.
Yes, at UFC 195 on January 2nd, the bantamweight contender will be competing for the first time since December, 2013. McDonald, who was submitted by Urijah Faber in his last bout, is scheduled to take on Masanori Kanehara.
It will be fascinating to see how McDonald performs, and further, if the 24 year-old mounts a title run in 2016. “Mayday” is currently ranked #8 at 135.
Recently the UFC posted McDonald’s highlight reel, tap-out win over Brad Pickett, which earned “Submission of the Week” honors.
