Miguel Torres

The UFC is constantly tweaking its approach on everything, from fight cards to production to promotion and more. Their latest move is to add a sixth bout to the UFC 145 main card on pay-per-view.

Already headlined by the UFC light heavyweight title bout between champion Jon Jones and challenger Rashad Evans, the Atlanta fight card just went one better with the addition of one of the promotion’s top veteran bantamweights in Miguel Torres against one of the division’s top up-and-comers in Michael McDonald.

“Fighting on pay-per-view is special to me,” said Torres. “I would watch the big boxing cards with my father as a kid, and my father would well up with pride and emotion when guys like Julio Cesar Chavez fought. I’d never seen my father show so much emotion and I am proud to become an extension of that great Mexican fighting legacy in the UFC.”

McDonald was just as excited about the promotion to the main card as Torres, knowing that he’s got one of the toughest fights of his career before him.

“I think Miguel Torres is definitely the most significant opponent I’ve ever faced on a business perspective,” said McDonald. “Now it’s my chance to prove to myself that I can do what I think I can do on a huge pay-per-view event.”

UFC 145 takes place on April 21 at Phillips Arena in Atlanta.
