UFC Welterweight Rick Story

On Sunday, a welterweight affair between Rick Story (pictured) and John Howard was announced for UFC Fight Night Atlantic City.

The July 16 event takes place inside Revel Casino Hotel in New Jersey.

Story has been on a roller coaster since posting the biggest win of his career over former top contender Thiago Alves in May 2011. “Horror” has since gone 3-5 and has alternated between wins and losses over his past seven outings.

This could very well be a must-win for the once-promising Story.

Howard is also looking to bounce back from a defeat. Ryan LaFlare snapped his four-fight winning streak last month.

Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the main card live.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Rick Story vs. John Howard

Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana

Jim Miller vs. Donald Cerrone
