Shortly after announcing Nate Diaz would face Jim Miller in the UFC’s third show on FOX, the world’s most prestigious MMA organization confirmed a scrap between “The Ultimate Fighter 14” winner John Dodson (Pictured) and Darren Uyenoyama for the May 5th event.
Both athletes are shedding 10 pounds to battle in the Octagon’s brand new flyweight division.
Dodson will be breaking in his freshly-inked six-figure UFC contract after beating T.J. Dillashaw to take the TUF 14 tournament. He bumped his record up to 12-5 following last month’s TKO victory.
Uyenoyama posted a unanimous decision win over Norifumi Yamamoto in his big league debut this past November. “BC” has won three of his last four contests.
IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey will host the festivities.
Here is the card’s updated roster:
John Dodson vs. Darren Uyenoyama
Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller
