A lightweight matchup is in the works for FOX UFC Fight Night in Chicago on July 25 as former champion Anthony Pettis looks to bounce back from his recent loss as he faces Myles Jury in a pivotal matchup for both men at 155 pounds.
Pettis will look to rebound after suffering a five-round unanimous decision loss to Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 185 in Dallas where he surrendered the UFC lightweight title.
A broken orbital bone hindered Pettis from the first round after dos Anjos cracked the former champion with a huge left hand early and Pettis ended up losing in a lopsided decision.

Now Pettis will look to get back on the horse with a big matchup in July against a fellow top-10 ranked lightweight.
Jury also looks to return to winning form following a disappointing performance in his last bout against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at UFC 182 in January.
Prior to that defeat, Jury was on a six-fight win streak in the UFC with two of those victories coming by way of knockout or TKO.
