Halifax Metro Centre
The UFC’s first visit to Halifax on Saturday, October 4th has a stellar headliner, as top welterweight contenders Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine collide in a five-round matchup. Currently ranked No. 2 in the world, British Columbia native MacDonald has won seven of his past eight bouts, with recent victories against Demian Maia and Tyron Woodley. Belgium’s Saffiedine has his sights set on a title shot, and the former Strikeforce champion is well on his way to that goal if he can extend his five-fight winning streak.
