A pair of bantamweights will enter the UFC’s newest division, as John Dodson and Darren Uyenoyama have signed to compete at UFC on FOX 3 in the flyweight division. UFC on FOX 3 takes place May 5 from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
It was not announced if the Dodson-Uyenoyama fight would be placed on the main or prelim card for the night, but it will likely receive a TV audience one way or another.
Dodson (12-5) captured the bantamweight title on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter, downing T.J. Dillashaw in the finals. Uyenoyama (7-3) won his UFC debut match over “Kid” Yamamoto at the first UFC on FOX event back in November.
The only other bout to be scheduled for UFC on FOX 3 to date is a lightweight war between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller.
