John Dodson and Pedro Munhoz will square off at UFC Fight Night 125.
Promotion officials announced the bantamweight bout on Thursday. UFC Fight Night 125 takes place in Belem, Brazil, on Feb. 3 and is headlined by a middleweight tilt between Lyoto Machida and Eryk Anders. The card will air on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
Dodson has lost two of his last three contests, but they were narrow split-decision defeats to Marlon Moraes and John Lineker. The two-time flyweight title challenger is 2-2 since moving up to 135 pounds, with victories over Eddie Wineland and Manny Gamburyan.
Munhoz, meanwhile, has won his last four, including a first-round submission of Rob Font in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 119. Munhoz’s only losses in UFC competition have come to top 135-pound contenders Jimmie Rivera and Raphael Assuncao.
