The Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald bantamweight fight was officially added to the UFC 145 pay-per-view lineup on Thursday, which means that the April 21st main card will feature six live fights.
UFC pay-per-views traditionally feature five live fights, however, the organization has recently started to deviate from the norm, as they aired seven fights at UFC 144.
"Fighting on Pay-Per-View is special to me," Torres stated on UFC.com. "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."
Torres (40-4) is 3-1 in his last four fights, while the 21-year-old McDonald (14-1) has won his last seven fights in a row.
Below is a look at the full UFC 145 lineup, which will take place at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta.
