A battle of bantamweight sluggers has been added to the UFC’s April 22nd show.
In the UFC’s 135-pound division, you won’t find many guys that hit harder than John Dodson and Eddie Wineland. So it seems like a natural fit to match them up against each other, right?
Well, that’s what the promotion has gone and set up for UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville on April 22nd.
Dodson (18-8, 7-3 UFC) is 1-1 since his return to bantamweight, dropping a close decision to John Lineker in his last fight back in October. The TUF 14 winner is currently ranked as the number nine contender in the division.
Wineland (23-11-1, 5-5 UFC) has won two in a row, stopping both Takeya Mizugaki and Frankie Saenz with strikes. The former interim title challenger sits at number 11 in the bantamweight rankings.
UFC Fight Night 108 goes down April 22nd in the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and will be headlined by a featherweight scrap between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov.
