Jorgensen vs. Martinez added to UFC Fight Night 42

Scott JorgensenA flyweight bout between Scott Jorgensen and Danny Martinez has been added to UFC Fight Night 42 scheduled for June 7th in Albuquerque, N.M. UFC officials announced the match-up Wednesday evening.

Jorgensen (14-9) was once a Bantamweight contender in the WEC but has not fared so well inside the UFC Octagon, only winning three of his eight appearances. Currently, the 31-year-old Utah native is on a three-fight skid and is coming off a first round submission loss to Jussier Formiga at UFC Fight Night 38 last month.

Martinez (16-5) lost his UFC debut to Chris Cariaso via unanimous decision at UFC 169 back in February. Prior to that the 28-year-old Alliance MMA product had won four straight bouts in various regional shows. Both Martinez and Jorgensen are in need of a win, but another loss for Jorgensen and he could find himself looking for a new employer.

  • Benson Henderson vs. Rustam Khabilov
