Fan vote sends Scott Jorgensen vs. Eddie Wineland to UFC on FX 3's main card

Quote:
An intriguing bantamweight matchup between Scott Jorgensen (13-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Eddie Wineland (18-8-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has been added to UFC on FX 3's main card.

Heavy.com first reported the results of the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown contest, which allowed fans to choose one of three bouts to appear on the UFC on FX 3 main card.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) subsequently confirmed with sources close to the contest that Jorgensen vs. Wineland was the bout selected, beating out Mike Pierce vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha and Seth Baczynski vs. Lance Benoist for the honor.

UFC officials have yet to make a formal announcement.

UFC on FX 3 takes place June 8 at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The location of the card was also determined through fan voting.

Jorgensen looks to bounce back from a disappointing decision loss to Barao this past February. The result snapped a two-fight win streak for Jorgensen built after an unsuccessful bid for the WEC's bantamweight belt at December 2010's WEC 53 event.

Meanwhile, Wineland, the WEC's first-ever bantamweight champion, tries for the third time to earn a win in the UFC's octagon. Wineland ended his time in the WEC on a four-fight win streak with victories over Ken Stone, Will Campuzano, George Roop and Manny Tapia. However, since migrating to the UFC, Wineland has dropped back-to-back fights to Joseph Benavidez and Urijah Faber.

With the addition to the main card, the UFC on FX 3 fight card now includes:

MAIN CARD (FX)
Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall - flyweight-tourney opening round
Charlie Brenneman vs. Erick Silva
Josh Neer vs. Mike Pyle
Scott Jorgensen vs. Eddie Wineland

PRELIMINARY CARD (FUEL TV)
Leonard Garcia vs. Matt Grice
Mike Pierce vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha
Seth Baczynski vs. Lance Benoist
Dustin Pague vs. Jared Papazian
Tim Means vs. Justin Salas
Caio Magalhaes vs. Buddy Roberts
Bernardo Magalhaes vs. Henry Martinez
Jake Hecht vs. Sean Pierson
