Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald (24-13, 5-5 UFC) will get a second chance in the UFC, as he steps in to face John Salter (4-1, 0-1 UFC) in a middleweight bout at UFC 113 in Montreal next weekend. David Loiseau was unable to get licensed as a replacement for the injured Nick Catone, so MacDonald gets the call instead.
