Central Alberta’s Jason MacDonald to take on Travis Lutter at MFC 22

Canadian middleweight Jason (The Athlete) MacDonald will face off against fellow UFC veteran Travis (The Serial Killer) Lutter in the co-main event of MFC 22: Payoff on Oct. 2 at the River Cree Resort and Casino in suburban Enoch.

EDMONTON — Canadian middleweight Jason (The Athlete) MacDonald will face off against fellow UFC veteran Travis (The Serial Killer) Lutter in the co-main event of MFC 22: Payoff on Oct. 2 at the River Cree Resort and Casino in suburban Enoch.

The fight marks MacDonald’s return to the Maximum Fighting Championship after a 10-fight run in the UFC. MacDonald (21-12) won five and lost five before being released following a first-round TKO loss to Nate Quarry at UFC 97 in April.

Lutter (9-5) fought six times in the UFC — going 2-4 in the Octagon — and won Season 4 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” which featured veteran fighters looking to get their career back on track. The Texan was rewarded with a title shot against Anderson Silva but failed to make weight and was submitted by the Brazilian in a non-title affair at UFC 67 in February 2007. Most recently he was beaten by Rich Franklin at UFC 83 in April 2008.

MacDonald, from Red Deer, Alta., has already beaten three TUF alumni in Ed Herman, Chris Leben and Rory Singer.

The October fight card will be shown live on HDNET.
