Bantamweight bout rescheduled for UFC 222 in Las Vegas

Updated February 6, 2018 - 4:39 pm

A bantamweight bout between John Dodson and Pedro Munhoz has been rescheduled for UFC 222 at T-Mobile Arena on March 3.

The fight was pulled from the UFC Fight Night 125 card in Brazil on Saturday after Munhoz missed weight by four pounds and they couldn’t agree on terms to keep the matchup intact.

Dodson has dropped two of his last three fights and is coming off a split-decision loss to Marlon Moraes in November.

Munhoz is on a four-fight winning streak, including a first-round submission of Rob Font in October.

UFC 222 features a heavyweight bout between Andrei Arlovski and Stefan Struve. The main event title between Frankie Edgar and featherweight champion Max Holloway was pulled from the card this week because of Holloway’s leg injury.

A replacement for Holloway or an alternate headliner for the event are being sought by UFC officials.
