UFC 200: Tate vs. Nunes UFC Fight Night: McDonald vs. Lineker UFC on Fox: Holm vs. Shevchenko

UFC Fight Night: McDonald vs. Lineker (also known as UFC Fight Night 91) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on July 13, 2016, at Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was the first that the organization has hosted in South Dakota.[2][3]

A lightweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter winners was scheduled to headline the event, as The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos winner Tony Ferguson was expected to face The Ultimate Fighter: Live winner Michael Chiesa.[4] However, Chiesa pulled out due to a back injury on June 27.[5] On the following day, it was announced that promotional newcomer Lando Vannata would replace him and the bout would be moved to the co-main event, as a bantamweight bout between former interim UFC Bantamweight Championship challenger Michael McDonald and John Lineker was revealed as the new headliner.[6]

Alex White was expected to face The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber winner Ryan Hall, but pulled out on June 28 due to an undisclosed injury. Hall elected to fight on a different date rather than have the promotion find him a replacement.[7]
