The recently announced UFC on FOX 3 event has a new addition.

Following Tuesday's announcement of a Jim Miller vs. Nate Diaz bout, UFC officials announced "The Ultimate Fighter 14" winner John Dodson (12-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has agreed to meet Darren Uyenoyama (7-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at the event.

Both fighters are dropping from bantamweight to flyweight for the fight.

The winner here probably gets a title eliminator to fight the new champ once the mini tourney is over. It's good to be a 125er in the UFC right now, you're really only about 2 wins away from a title shot at any given time...until they fill out the division a bit more that is.

Nice to see Dodson down at flyweight, he'll be even more of a force to be wreckened with. I missed Uyenoyama's fight so ill probs go with Dodson on this one

Ah, I didn't seen the flyweight part.

Kinda sucks that a guy wins a division on TUF then drops down. I'm sure he would have done fine at BW.

I'm on the Uyenoyama bandwagon. I thought he did superbly well against Yamamoto and I will be rooting for him against Dodson.

Tough test for Dodson in his first non-TUF related UFC fight. Excited to see him in the new division, though.

Nice little match up. I was real impressed with Darren, even though it was against a fading Kid. We'll see how Dodson handles himself if Darren is able to threaten with subs from bottom or takedowns.

I doubt Darren even gets him down or last 1 round. Dodson with a first round tko.
