UFC Fight Night 91 Co-Main To Feature John Lineker Vs. Michael McDonald


One-time UFC title contender Michael McDonald will make his second appearance inside the Octagon this year after spending two years on the sidelines when he returns against John Lineker at UFC Fight Night 91.

The bantamweight contest will serve as the co-main event for the UFC’s debut in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on July 13.

McDonald (17-3) has gone 2-2 over his last four after posting a 15-1 record. During his time with the UFC, “Mayday” has defeated the likes of Masanori Kanehara, Brad Pickett, Miguel Torres and Chris Cariaso.

He is a two-time “Fight of the Night” winner and “Submission of the Night” bonus winner. In all, McDonald has earned six fight-night bonuses.

Lineker (27-7) is on a four-fight win streak and is 8-1 over his last nine, losing only via decision to former UFC title contender Ali Bagautinov. Earlier this month he defeated Rob Font via decision.

UFC Fight Night 91 is headlined by Tony Ferguson vs. Michael Chiesa in a lightweight showdown.
