Both Scott Jorgensen and Eddie Wineland will look to get back on track when they meet in a bantamweight showdown at UFC on FX 3 on June 8.

UFC officials announced the bout on Friday.

Jorgensen (13-5), who failed to dethrone current UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz when both were in the WEC, is coming off of a loss to rising star Renan Barão at UFC 143 in February. He had put back-to-back wins together prior to that fight.

Wineland (18-8-1) is in a more desperate situation than Jorgensen. After putting four consecutive wins together, streaking towards a title shot, Wineland has since dropped two straight to Urijah Faber and Joseph Benavidez.

The UFC on FX 3 fight card also features the flyweight rematch between Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson. A venue and location have yet to be announced for the event.
