This fall’s UFC Fight Night 120 lineup has an intriguing bantamweight addition.
UFC Fight Night 120 takes place Nov. 11 at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.
Dodson, who’s No. 14 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA bantamweight rankings, is 2-1 since moving up to bantamweight following a 2015 title loss to 125-pound champ Demetrious Johnson. In his most recent bout, the 32-year-old Jackson-Wink MMA fighter and “TUF 14” champion rebounded from a split-decision defeat to John Lineker with a unanimous-decision victory over Eddie Wineland in April.
He now meet No. 8-ranked Moraes, a longtime WSOF champ who made his long-awaited UFC debut – while sporting a 13-fight winning streak – in June. The 29-year-old Brazilian, who set a WSOF record with five consecutive title defenses, then suffered a narrow split-decision defeat to fellow contender Raphael Assuncao at UFC 212.
