Belcher vs. MacDonald And McGee vs. Yang At UFN 25 In New Orleans, Louisiana

Two middleweight bouts have been announced when the UFC returns to New Orleans for the first time since 2000. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt, Alan Belcher takes on Canadian, Jason MacDonald and Ultimate Fighter 11 winner, Court McGee faces heavy handed, Dongi Yang at UFC Fight Night 25 on September 17th in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Belcher was last in action on the UFC 113 card in May 2010 defeating Patrick Cote via submission. He was set to face Demian Maia in late 2010 but an eye injury forced him out of the fight. MacDonald picked up a much needed win on his return to the octagon following injury, defeating Ryan Jensen on the UFC 129 card in Toronto, Ontario, Canada just last month.

McGee battled back after he was defeated in the knockout stages to win the TUF reality show just last year. He was last seen in action at UFC 121 in Anaheim, California defeating Ryan Jensen via arm triangle choke the very last round. Yang made an impressive start to his octagon career, picking up a second round TKO win over Rob Kimmons earlier this year.
