Rory MacDonald to face Che Mills at UFC 145 in Montreal

Rory MacDonald will face a fellow up-and-coming welterweight in his adopted hometown of Montreal on March 24 when he takes on British standout Che “Beautiful” Mills at Bell Centre at UFC 145.

Sportsnet’s “Showdown” Joe Ferraro was the first to report the potential bout via Twitter and we have since confirmed the news with a source close to one of the fighters.

Che Mills is coming off his first UFC fight and win against TUF contestant Chris Cope. He holds a win over UFC fighter Jake Hecht but this is a huge step up for Che. Rory is coming off impressive wins against Nate Diaz and Mike Pyle after he was taught a lesson when he dropped the only loss of his career against Carlos Condit.
