A UFC welterweight bout between Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine will be the main event at UFC Fight Night Oct. 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. UFC officials announced the welterweight fight and will be aired on Fox Sports.
MacDonald (17-2) will look to potentially solidify a UFC title shot against Saffiedine. The 25-year-old Canadian is 8-2 in the UFC and coming off a unanimous decision win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 174 in June.
Saffiedine (15-3) won his first UFC victory in a unanimous decision against Hyun Gyu Lim at a UFC Fight Night in January.
The 170-pound main event is currently the only fight scheduled for the Oct. 4 card. This will make the UFC’s first trip to Halifax.
