Since UFC 200 is going down in a month’s time, a lot of people maybe looking past next weekend’s scrap between Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson, but does that mean it’s not a huge fight? Nope.

Not only will it feature the promotion’s #2 ranked welterweight in┬áThompson, taking on the #1 ranked MacDonald, it’s the last bout on the latter’s current UFC deal. So, obviously if MacDonald wins he”ll take a big step towards another title shot, as well as a big raise. Or so you would think…

Recently the UFC released the promo video below for the upcoming bout, which features both men discussing the importance of the fight. The scrap will headline UFC FN 89, which will take place on June 18th in Ottawa, Ontario.
