Myles Jury vs. Mike Ricci added to UFC 165

USA TODAY Sports

Two TUFers have been inserted into the UFC 165 fight lineup, as Myles Jury faces Mike Ricci in the lightweight division.

A lightweight addition has been made to UFC 165 in Toronto, as Myles Jury takes on Mike Ricci on the September 21st PPV event. Ariel Helwani reported the news last night for MMA Fighting. The card was made official on Thursday with a main event of Jon Jones' LHW title defense vs. Alexander Gustafsson.

Jury (12-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has been very impressive in his UFC career. After the TUF 15 alum submitted Chris Saunders on the season finale, he easily defeated Michael Johnson by unanimous decision at UFC 155. He then fought Ramsey Nijem at UFC on Fox 7 in San Jose and obliterated Nijem with a 2nd round KO.

Ricci (8-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is a TUF 16 lightweight who lost to Colton Smith in the final. The 27-year-old Canadian, who is not related to the 41-year-old former NHL player Mike Ricci, beat Colin Fletcher by unanimous decision at UFC 158, sending the TUF Smashes runner-up out of the UFC.

This is the 3rd consecutive TUF runner-up Jury has faced, so at this rate he's probably going to somehow end up fighting Philippe Nover, Tommy Speer, Andre Winner, and Luke Cummo.
