Many believed that Michael McDonald was going to be able to make a big splash in the UFC’s bantamweight division with a win over former WEC champion Urijah Faber, but he was overwhelmed by the veteran on Saturday night in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 9.

Faber was able to neutralize every aspect of McDonald’s game, before landing a devastating flurry of punches that knocked McDonald to the ground before Faber sunk in the fight ending choke.

With the win, Faber is expected to get the next title shot in 2014.
