Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald OFFICIAL co-main UFC on FOX 9.

As the co-main event. Dana originally said it was tentative, but UFC twitter just officially announced it. Who you got?

I think Faber uses his wrestling to get a decision.

Hard to pick against Faber in a non-title bout. With a win here, he would be 4-0 in 2013. Very impressive.

I'm torn, 2 of my favorite Bantamweights. McDonald is the superior striker, but Faber is so physically strong and has great grappling skills.

Hard to call imo

Agree. Don't like this fight. I wanted them kept separate.

Faber via UD

McDonald is no joke though, KO power is serious.

Faber is the most underrated fighter in the UFC
Dude is 18-0 in non title fights or something like that
Amazing!

Great fight. Hard to pick....so I'll sit on the fence somewhat and say Faber via decision or Mcdonald via KO/TKO.

Have to think Faber is the favorite but damn this is a crazy fight. Two of my favorite fighters and two of the most exciting fighters in the world. This is gonna be a banger
