Dodson-Gamburyan now featured FIGHT PASS bout for Fight Night Tampa

In a restructuring of the card in the wake of the new main event, John Dodson’s return to the bantamweight division vs Manny Gamburyan is now the Featured Bout on the FIGHT PASS Early Prelims on April 16, as UFC FIGHT NIGHT emanates from Tampa, Florida.

Dodson twice challenged pound-for-pounder Demetrious Johnson for UFC flyweight gold and, now, returns to the 135lbs division where he stormed his way to winning The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 five years ago.
