Originally, Myles Jury was to face Anthony Pettis later this summer at UFC on FOX 16.

After an injury to Pettis, Jury agreed to take on Edson Barboza at the July 25 card from Chicago’s United Center. Now, Jury is hurt and Paul Felder will step in to meet the Brazilian.

Felder (10-0) has won both of his Octagon bouts, besting Jason Saggo and Danny Castillo. Barboza (15-3) was topped by Michael Johnson most recently, dropping him to 2-2 in his last four.

The card features a bantamweight main event for the title between T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao. Also, Miesha Tate takes on Jessica Eye in a female bantamweight No. 1 contender match.
