Eddie Wineland and John Castaneda have agreed to square off at the UFC’s Feb. 20 event.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the pairing. A location and headliner for the event have yet to be announced. A heavyweight clash pitting Alexey Oleynik against Chris Daukaus and a bantamweight tilt between Yana Kunitskaya and Ketlen Vieira are also slated for the card.
Wineland is 1-3 in his last four promotional appearances following a first-round knockout loss to Sean O’Malley in his most recent outing at UFC 250. The WEC veteran’s lone victory during that stretch came when he knocked out Grigory Popov at UFC 238.
An 11-time Combate Americas veteran, Castaneda has also last three of his last four pro fights. That includes his Octagon debut, when he dropped a unanimous decision against Nathaniel Wood at UFC on ESPN 14 on July 25.
