    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.

    They retracted the tweet and said it was "possible" nothing is official yet. UFC twitter is run by idiots.
