Rick Story will look to get back on track in the welterweight division when he takes on Sean Pierson at UFC 158.
UFC officials confirmed the fight on Tuesday for the March 16 card from Montreal. It will likely be on the prelims.
Story (14-6) has won just one of four fights since putting together a six-bout win streak. He owns a victory over current top contender Johny Hendricks, and has gone 7-4 since joining the UFC.
Pierson (13-6) is 3-2 in his last five fights and will be seeking a third consecutive victory in his native country.
