Rory MacDonald and Ivan Menjivar Set To Compete at UFC 133


Pyle vs. MacDonald agreed to for UFC 133
UFC President Dana White announced today that the City of Brotherly Love will get another dose of high-impact Welterweight action on August 6th with a veteran vs. prospect meeting.

“Welterweight standouts Mike ‘Quicksand’ Pyle and Rory ‘The Water Boy’ MacDonald have verbally agreed to fight at UFC 133 in Philadelphia,” said White.

Menjivar vs. Pace added to UFC 133
This August in Philadelphia, veteran Ivan Menjivar will look to follow-up his crushing UFC 129 knockout of Charlie Valencia with a win over hot 135-pound prospect Nick Pace.

“Bantamweights Ivan Menjivar and Nick Pace have agreed to fight each other August 6, at UFC 133 in Philadelphia,” said UFC President Dana White. “Menjivar is coming off a devastating elbow KO win and Pace utilized a rarely seen type of submission to secure the victory in his last outing.”

Pace was orginally slated to fight Michael McDonald at UFC 133, but McDonald stepped in for an injured fighter on the UFC 130 card.

    Nick Pace had a sweet sub his last fight what was a first time, but he will not be able to out grapple Ivan in my eyes and is out matched on the feet. Going with Ivan with this one.

    Pyle is always counted out and is a few big wins away from a big fight after his last few wins. Pyle just beat one of the bigger prospects in the 170 division beating Hathaway but once again I am going go with the young one in Macdonald but what a tough fight, Rory is not taking a easy path.

    To give him Condit, Diaz and Pyle so early in his UFC career they obviously have great confidence that he can be a contender in the welterweight division!
