Two bouts added to “UFC Fight Night: Battle on the Bayou”
A pair of bouts are now official for “UFC Fight Night: Battle On The Bayou” this September in Louisiana.
Belcher last competed at UFC 113, where he submitted former top contender Patrick Cote. However, he ran into problems following the fight, as his eye required surgery, forcing him out of action for some time. MacDonald, meanwhile, recently returned after a lengthy layoff, defeating Ryan Jensen via submission at UFC 129.
In the other middleweight contest, “Ultimate Fighter” winner Court McGee looks to build off consecutive Octagon wins this Fall. He last fought at UFC 121 and defeated the aforementioned Jensen via submission. Yi, who lost at UFC 121 to Chris Camozzi, defeated Rob Kimmons by technical knockout last March.
“UFC Fight Night: Battle On The Bayou” is set for New Orleans, Louisiana on September 17, but a venue has yet to be announced. The event will broadcast live on Spike TV. No other fights have been announced as of this date.
