Welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald will make his return to the UFC in March against Che Mills, MMAFighting.com has confirmed with sources close to the fight.

The Canadian MacDonald, who pulled out of his UFC 140 fight against Brian Ebersole last month due to an injury, will meet Mills at UFC 145 on March 24 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The organization has yet to officially announce its return to "La Belle Province" or any fights on the card.

The 22-year-old MacDonald (12-1) is 3-1 in the UFC, recently defeating Mike Pyle at UFC 133 in August via first-round TKO.

Mills (14-4, 1 NC), a British fighter who made his Octagon debut at UFC 138 last month, has won his last five fights in a row. The former Cage Rage British welterweight champion needed just 40 seconds to beat Chris Cope in his UFC debut.

Weird match. Rory is right up there with the top of the heap imo. Id imagine this was just more of a "No other ww wants tom fight rory" type thing

I think it's just the timing, Zuffa probably just wanted him because its the Montreal card but everyone is booked for the most part. Not many other big named Canadians who will be able to fight in March. GSP out, Hominick fighting tonight, etc

I dont get why they didnt hold off Ryan Jimmo until March instead of letting him fight Vemola in January.
