You ever look at a fight booking and think "I'm sure these guys have fought before, but I guess they haven't"? That's what this UFC on FX 3 fight looked like to me. Despite both guys spending years in the WEC, they've never actually met in the cage. They will now though, on June 8th. UFC.com gives it to you, bantamweight style:

They've fought in the same division for years and now two perennial bantamweight contenders will finally cross paths, as Eddie Wineland and Scott "Young Guns" Jorgensen have verbally agreed to fight at the June 8 UFC on FX event.

Wineland (17-8-1) was the first WEC bantamweight champion and fought a total of seven times in the WEC, going 5-2. His UFC tenure hasn't gone as well, dropping decisions to both Urijah Faber and Joseph Benavidez in 2011. His tough UFC schedule continues with a bout against Jorgensen (13-5), a 10-time WEC veteran who lost his only chance at the 135 title at the final WEC event. He rebounded by winning his first two UFC fights, but dropped a decision to Renan Barao at UFC 143 in his last bout.

It's unclear if the bout will be on the UFC on FX 3 main card at this point, but it should be.
