Two men looking for their first win in the UFC will meet at UFC on FX 3 on June 8th. They have a fair amount in common - they both lost their only UFC bout to men much bigger than them. The news comes from FightBulletin.net:

Australian based UFC fighter, Bernardo‘Trekko’ Magalhaes has revealed to FightBulletin.net that he will face Henry Martinez at UFC on FX 3.

Magalhaes (11-2), the Cage Fighting Championship lightweight champion, dropped his UFC debut to Tim Means at UFC on Fuel 1 last month. Martinez (8-2), a Greg Jackson product, stepped in as a late replacement at welterweight to face Matt Riddle at UFC 143. Despite giving up a ton of size, Martinez was very competitive in the bout and lost by split-decision. He will now drop down to his natural weight class and face Magalhaes.

The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary card.
