First and foremost, Urijah Faber is coming off another loss in a title fight against the now Interim Bantamweight Champion, Renan Barao. And Michael "Mayday" McDonald having just knocked out and sent former(WEC) Champion, Miguel "Angel" Torres packing, Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald makes sense in every which way.

We should all know about Michael McDonald by now, every single one of his bouts have brought forth some of the greatest emotion from the crowd and some knockout power that everybody loves. Knowing that, and taking a look back at the drive and competitiveness of "The California Kid", ensures me that this would be an all out barn burner!

If Michael McDonald were to win this fight, Faber is just the name to catapult his name into number one contender ship. A win over McDonald for Urijah would benefit him in further proving his relevance in MMA, also putting him back in the win column, and a trilogy fight with current Bantamweight Champion, Dominick Cruz would make a ton of sense. Whether Cruz loses to Barao or not...
