The UFC will make their way to the an out-of-the-way destination on July 13th - South Dakota, to be exact. The card was expected to be headlined by an intriguing lightweight bout between Michael Chiesa and Tony Ferguson, but a Chiesa injury dropped Ferguson to the co-main against a newcomer. Instead, we'll get a bantamweight barnburner on top - Michael McDonald vs. John Lineker.
The bout order still hasn't been announced, but there are some recognizable names that should be on the main card. One of BE's favorites, Josh Samman, will take on Tim Boetsch. Flyweight prospect Ben Nguyen will take on Louis Smolka. And the heavyweight will throw down, with Daniel Omielanczuk taking on Oleksiy Oliynyk.
