UFC Myles Jury

The game of musical lightweight chairs continues. It went from Anthony Pettis vs. Myles Jury (pictured), to Jury vs. Edson Barboza, and now fans will have to settle for Paul Felder vs. Barboza at UFC on FOX 16.

The UFC announced the latest switcheroo Tuesday via Twitter.

No word on what injury forced Jury out of the shootout.

The July 25 event goes down inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Barboza is also trying to bounce back from a loss. The Brazilian had won two straight prior to dropping a unanimous decision to Michael Johnson in February.

Felder is perfect through his first 10 professional fights, with his last two coming inside the octagon. “The Irish Dragon” most recently knocked out Danny Castillo at UFC 182 in January.

FOX broadcasts the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Here is the show’s updated agenda:
