With Demetrious joining the new flyweight division, The Ultimate Fighter 14’s Johnny Bedford will take his spot on the UFC on Fox 2 fight card in a preliminary matchup with fellow bantamweight Eddie Wineland at the January 28 event in Chicago, the UFC announced today.
Wineland (18-8-1) won his last four fights in the WEC, where he previously held the bantamweight title, but is still looking for his first UFC win following losses to Urijah Faber and Joseph Benavidez. Bedford (18-9-1), a semifinalist on TUF 14, scored a third-round TKO of fellow castmember Louis Gaudinot at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale earlier this month.
UFC on Fox 2 is headlined by Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis and also features Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz and Michael Bisping vs. Demian Maia on its Fox-televised main card.
