Rapid City’s Clint Godfrey, fighting out of Dynamic Martial Arts, had his latest World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight bout announced by the organization on Monday.

Godfrey, a Rapid City Central graduate who has an 11-2 professional mixed martial arts record, will be taking on Modesto, Calif., fighter Michael McDonald. The highly-touted McDonald enters the fight with a professional record of 10-1 — including wins over WEC veterans Cole Escovedo and Manny Tapia — and will be making his organizational debut on the Thursday, Nov. 11 card.

The fight will take place on the undercard of the Urijah Faber-Takeya Mizugaki fight at The Pearl at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas. Godfrey, who has never been stopped in his MMA career, losing two fights by decision, was originally scheduled to fight Demetrious Johnson on the Sept. 30 WEC card in Broomfield, Colo., but had to pull out of the bout due to a nasty staph infection in his knee.

The card includes nine other fights, including a matchup between Wagnney Fabiano and Joseph Benavidez. Fabiano (14-2) won a unanimous decision over Godfrey in Godfrey’s WEC debut in January. The other fights on the card are Erik Koch vs. Josh Grispi, Javier Vazquez vs. Chad Mendes, Damacio Page vs. Eddie Wineland, L.C. Davis vs. Raphael Assuncao, Edward Faaloloto vs. Anthony Njokuani, Dustin Poirier vs. Zack Micklewright, Mackens Semerzier vs. Cub Swanson and Brandon Visher vs. Yves Jabouin.

The event will be televised at 7 p.m. on the VERSUS television network but the entire undercard will not necessarily be televised.

    Good luck, Clint. Thanks RCJ for giving him some ink. The fight game has grown to such immense proportions. Any knowlegeable fan knows how big of an opportunity this is for Clint. It's the biggest stage for his weight class and I wish him the best.
