Sometimes the road through life takes unforeseen twists and turns. It did in a big way this week.

Antonio McKee and Jacob Volkmann at UFC 125

Antonio McKee and Jacob Volkmann at UFC 125

Antonio McKee won the Maximum Fighting Championship lightweight title by defeating Derrick Noble at MFC 20 in early 2009. He fought two more times for the promotion before making the jump to prove himself in the UFC.

Drew Fickett was heading for the MFC in 2008, but a public falling out between him and MFC president Mark Pavelich ended badly. Fickett and Pavelich parted ways.

Now, the turns of fate have both headed back to Canada to fight each other, for Pavelich, at MFC 28.

Time really must heal all wounds.

McKee (25-4-2) got one shot in the Octagon. He lost a split decision to Jacob Volkmann at UFC 125 and was sent packing.

McKee will put his lightweight title on the line for the second time on Feb. 25 when he returns to the MFC.

Fickett (40-13) went on a 2-8 yearlong skid after his falling out with Pavelich in 2008. He has since turned his career around, winning four straight fights, including three fights in one night last September, winning the Shine Fights Lightweight Grand Prix.

McKee vs. Fickett will serve as the co-main event at MFC 28: Supremacy at the River Cree Resort and Casino, just outside Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It will air live on HDNet Fights.
