Lutter, MacDonald Map Northern Course
“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 4 middleweight winner Travis Lutter
will tangle with fellow UFC castaway Jason
MacDonald in the co-main event at Maximum Fighting Championship
22 “Payoff” on Oct. 2 at the River Cree Resort and Casino in
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Lutter (9-5), 36, has fought only twice since November 2006. A
Brazilian jiu-jitsu black who once took a round from UFC
middleweight champion Anderson
Silva, he succumbed to strikes against Rich Franklin
at UFC 83 some 15 months ago. Victories against Patrick Cote
and Jose “Pele”
Landi-Jons highlight his resume.
A surprising casualty of UFC roster cuts, MacDonald (21-12) has
dropped back-to-back bouts and three of his last four. The
34-year-old Canadian last appeared at UFC 97 in April, when he was
finished by first-round elbows from Nate Quarry.
MacDonald has secured 17 of his 21 career victories by submission
and holds notable wins against former World Extreme Cagefighting
titleholder Jason Lambert,
Leben and Ed Herman.
“I’ve spoken to Jason personally about this fight, and I can tell
from his demeanor that he has some bad intentions for Lutter,” MFC
President Mark Pavelich said in a news release. “Frankly, it has
been very rare throughout his career to hear Jason talk like this,
so it’s easy to tell that he is gearing up for it. And I know from
Lutter’s camp that he is primed for this big opportunity. We
couldn’t ask for anything more in setting up this clash.”
