Despite almost three rounds of fast-paced ground warfare against Demian Maia at UFC 87 on August 9th, Edmonton’s Jason “The Athlete” MacDonald has decided to step to the plate again less than a month after the bout to replace injured countryman Jason Day against Jason Lambert at UFC 88.

The middleweight battle will take place on September 6th at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets for UFC 88 – which features the light heavyweight showdown between Chuck Liddell and Rashad Evans – are on sale now.

MacDonald (21-10), who was submitted by Maia in the third round of the best groundfighting battle seen in the UFC this year earlier this month, owns Octagon wins over Ed Herman, Chris Leben, Rory Singer, and Joe Doerksen, and he will be looking to get back in the win column against Lambert (23-8) a longtime 205-pound standout making his middleweight debut on September 6th.

Another revised bout for the UFC 88 card will see Octagon newcomer Michael Patt stepping in to replace injured James Lee against Tim Boetsch in a light heavyweight contest. Patt, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt under Jorge Gurgel, fights out of Dayton, Ohio and owns 11 first round victories on his impressive 15-2 record.
