Top prospect, Michael McDonald and Nick Pace will face off in an exciting bantamweight bout at UFC 133 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 6th, 2011. The two men were originally set to meet at UFC Fight Night 24 before Pace picked up and injury and was later replaced Edwin Figueroa.

UFC President, Dana White had the following to say on UFC.com: “Coming off an incredible Fight Of The Night win, top prospect Michael McDonald returns to the Octagon to face another exciting up-and-comer, Nick Pace, as they have verbally agreed to face each other in a bantamweight bout at UFC 133.”
