Jorgensen and Eddie
Wineland will clash on the
UFC on FX 3 main card.
Jorgensen-Wineland served as one of three bubble matchups involved
in the Harley-Davidson “Hometown Throwdown” fan poll. The bout
Eduardo Rocha and Seth
Benoist to earn a spot on the FX broadcast. Wineland confirmed
the results of the fan vote Tuesday afternoon on Twitter; the UFC
has not yet made any official announcement.
Headlined by a pivotal flyweight rematch pitting Demetrious
Johnson against Ian McCall,
UFC on FX 3 takes place June 8 at the BankAtlantic Center in Fort
Lauderdale, Fla. The main card will also feature a pair of
welterweight confrontations, as Charlie
Brenneman meets Erick Silva
Pyle faces Josh Neer.
Jorgensen, 29, has won two of his last three bouts. Following five
consecutive WEC wins, “Young Guns” failed in his attempt to become
the UFC’s inaugural bantamweight champion, falling to Dominick
Cruz in December 2010. Jorgensen posted a pair of victories to
begin his UFC career, besting Ken Stone and
Curran before falling to rising talent Renan Barao at UFC
Wineland is still searching for his first Octagon victory. The
WEC’s first bantamweight titleholder saw a four-fight winning
streak snapped in his UFC debut when he was outpointed by Urijah Faber
last spring at UFC 128. Wineland found no redemption in his next
outing against Joseph
Benavidez, as Faber’s teammate also outpointed the Hoosier at
UFC Live 5 in August.
