Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A day after the UFC 165 main event was announced, an intriguing lightweight bout has been added to the card.

Undefeated Myles Jury will meet Mike Ricci at UFC 165, which is scheduled to take place Sept. 21 in Toronto, according to sources close to the fight.

Jury (12-0) recently extended his unbeaten streak when he knocked out Ramsey Nijem at UFC on FOX 7 in April. That win improved his record to 3-0 inside the Octagon.

Ricci (8-3), a finalist on the sixteenth season of "The Ultimate Fighter," picked up the first win of his young UFC career in March when he defeated Colin Fletcher via unanimous decision in his hometown of Montreal.

UFC 165, headlined by Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson for the UFC light heavyweight title, will take place at the Air Canada Centre.
