James Wilks vs. Rory MacDonald at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

TUF 9 welterweight winner, James Wilks will face off against top Canadian prospect, Rory MacDonald in a welterweight bout on the preliminary card of the evening at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on April 30th, 2011.

This could be Wilks last chance to impress after losing two out of his last three fights to Matt Brown and Claude Patrick. His sole win over the past year came against Peter Sobotta at UFC 115 back in June.

MacDonald suffered the first defeat of his MMA career last time out in somewhat controversial fashion. After winning the first two rounds against Carlos Condit he was pummelled for the next five minutes, only for the referee to stop the fight with seven seconds remaining.
