Lightweights looking to make a move towards a future title shot will collide at UFC Fight Night 44, when Myles Jury meets Abel Trujillo.
The bout was made official recently by the promotion for the June 28 card from San Antonio. The exact placement is unknown, but it will likely be part of the main card.

Trujillo (12-5) has scored two convincing second round finishes in each of his last two bouts, stopping Jamie Varner and Roger Bowling. His last loss came to contender Khabib Nurmagomedov via decision in early 2013.
