Updated full UFC Fight Night 89 card

In Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 89 main event in Ottawa, Canada, hometown hero and and second-ranked welterweight Rory MacDonald is up against fifth-ranked Stephen Thompson.

MacDonald (18-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) lost, last time out at UFC 189, against Robbie Lawler for the UFC Welterweight Championship via a technical knockout in round five in what was the ‘Fight of the Year’ for 2015.

He will be up against an in-form Thompson (12-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who knocked out ex-titleholder Johny Hendricks in February for his sixth straight win.

Another interesting matchup on Saturday’s main card is between former lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone (29-7 MMA, 16-4 UFC) and veteran Canadian, Patrick Cote (23-9 MMA, 10-9 UFC), who has won six of his last seven fights.
