The energetic John “The Magician” Dodson will make his UFC debut at his natural 125-lb flyweight class against Darren Uyenoyama at UFC on FOX 3. Dodson (12-5) won The Ultimate Fighter 14 last season by defeating much bigger competition at 135 lbs. He comes into this match already regarded as a high ranking flyweight in the world.
Uyenoyama (7-3) made his UFC debut at the UFC on FOX 1 undercard and won a unanimous decision victory over the highly touted Japanese fighter Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto.
UFC on FOX 3 will be held at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ on May 5, 2012.
