Myles Jury’s featherweight debut will be against a top contender, as he meets Charles Oliveira this December at UFC on FOX 17.

Set for December 19 from the Amway Center in Orlando, lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos defends his title against Donald Cerrone in the main event.

Jury (15-1) went 6-1 at 155 pounds before deciding to move down to 145 following a loss to Cerrone. He was expected to return earlier this year, but an injury knocked him out of action.

Oliveira (20-5) has competed 13 times with the UFC, posting a record of 8-5. His four-fight win streak was snapped recently by Max Holloway following an injury at the beginning of the first round.
