[BREAKING] Rory MacDonald and Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson to Headline June 18 Fight Night

UFC Fight Night: Wonderboy vs. MacDonald will take place on June 18th in Ottawa, Canada, live on Fox Sports 1.

Fresh off his dominate 1st round knockout victory over top contender Johny Hendricks, #2 ranked Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson is set to return to action on June 18th to take on #1 contender Rory MacDonald.

With the win over Hendricks, Wonderboy improved to 12-1, earning his sixth consecutive victory inside the Octagon. The win also marked his forth performance of the night bonus and fifth knockout since his debut in 2012.

Rory MacDonald, whose last contest against Robbie Lawler was deemed by many to be the greatest fight in MMA history and was near-unanimously selected as the 2015 Fight of the year, will be looking to earn another crack at the welterweight belt with a win over Wonderboy.

This has all the makings of a technical stand-up war and should be thoroughly entertaining from the opening bell. It would be nearly impossible to deny the winner a shot at the Welterweight Championship, and both men are fully capable of taking the belt. Get excited for this one folks.
