“The Magician,” who moved up from flyweight, is trying to shake off a loss to John Lineker at UFC Fight Night 96 and two losses in his last three fights.
Wineland has two finishes in his last two fights. Most recently, he stopped Takeya Mizugaki at UFC on FOX 22.
It should be a challenge of Dodson’s speed and quickness against Wineland’s proven knockout power.
UFC Fight Night 108 is scheduled to take place April 22 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Cub Swanson takes on Artem Lobov in the main event.
