Although the UFC was busy hosting their first major show on FX, they still had Georgia on their minds on Friday evening. In addition to announcing a bantamweight brawl between Miguel Torres (Pictured) and Michael McDonald for their Atlanta event, the organization also added several other bouts to the April 21st roster.
Torres owns an impressive 40–4 professional mixed martial arts record and was last seen posting a unanimous decision over Nick Pace at UFC 139.
McDonald has rattled off seven straight victories, with his most recent coming in a vicious knockout of Alex Soto this past November.
The eight other scraps reported today were initially slated to take place on the UFC’s Montreal card. It was expected those bouts would be moved to Atlanta after the company opted to shelve their return to Canada.
Philips Arena in Hotlanta is expected to host the Octagon’s return to the Peach State.
Here is the card’s updated lineup:
Keith Wisniewski vs. Chris Clements
Maximo Blanco vs. Marcus Brimage
Mac Danzig vs. Efrain Escudero
Anthony Njokuani vs. John Makdessi
Matt Wiman vs. Mark Bocek
Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub
Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald
Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin
Travis Browne vs. Chad Griggs
Rory MacDonald vs. Che Mills
