Former Ultimate Fighter competitor Johnny Bedford has accepted the slot and will face Wineland in Chicago on Jan. 28.
Bedford made the announcement via his Twitter account on Wednesday.
“It’s official! I am fighting ex WEC champ Eddie Wineland at UFC on Fox in Chicago on Jan 28,” Bedford wrote.
The TUF 14 fighter returns to action after he absolutely brutalized fellow housemate Louis Gaudinot at the finale show earlier this month.
Bedford will look to make it two-for-two in the Octagon when he faces a tough test in former WEC champion Eddie Wineland in January.
