Earlier this week the UFC revealed light heavyweight champion Jon Jones would defend his title at UFC 165 against Alexander Gustafsson. Now, it appears the headlining duo has some company on the card, as a lightweight bout between Myles Jury and Mike Ricci has been booked for the September 21 show in Toronto.
Though not officially announced, MMAFighting reported the rumble was set to unfold at the event.
The 12-0 Jury has picked up a trio of victories inside the Octagon including a knockout of Ramsey Nijem at UFC on FOX 7 in his most recent rumble. All but one of his victories has featured some form of finish.
Ricci, a finalist on TUF 16, holds an overall record of 8-3 including four TKOs. He was last seen outpointing Colin Fletcher in March.
