UFC CanadaA lightweight fight between Mike Ricci and Myles Jury has been added to the UFC 165 fight card.

UFC Canadian officials announced the new bout on Monday.

UFC 165 takes place Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. A light heavyweight title bout between champion Jon Jones and challenger Alexander Gustafsson headlines the card.

Jury (12-0) made his way to the UFC via the fifteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter. He lost on the reality series to eventual runner-up Al Iaquinta, but has taken full advantage of finally getting a shot in the Octagon.

He has won all three of his fights since his stint on the series.

Ricci (8-3) also made his way to the Octagon via The Ultimate Fighter. Unlike Jury, he made it all the way to the series final, but fell short in a unanimous decision loss to Colton Smith.

He turned the tables at UFC 158, however, defeating Colin Fletcher by decision.

The two TUF alums will now square off as part of the UFC 165 supporting bouts.
