McDonald, Lineker set to clash in Sioux Falls

After more than two years away, former world bantamweight title challenger Michael McDonald made a successful return to the Octagon in January with a Performance of the Night submission of Masanori Kanehara.

On July 13 at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the No. 6-ranked "Mayday" is back in action in a co-main event battle against No. 11-ranked John Lineker.
