Dodson battles Wineland in Nashville this April

It will be a clash of speed vs. power in Nashville on Apr. 22, as John Dodson faces Eddie Wineland in a bantamweight battle at Bridgestone Arena.

In UFC Fight Night's five-round main event, which airs live on FS1, featherweight rivals will settle the score as surging contender Cub Swanson takes on hard-hitting European standout Artem Lobov. Tickets go on sale March 3.

A former flyweight title challenger who returned to 135 pounds last April with a 37-second TKO of Manvel Gamburyan, Albuquerque's Dodson is intent on working his way to the top of the bantamweight class, a sentiment shared by former WEC champion Wineland. Fresh from back-to-back knockouts of Frankie Saenz and Takeya Mizugaki, Indiana's Wineland is showing his best UFC form yet at 32 years old.
