A lightweight bout between Edson Barboza and Evan Dunham is slated for UFC Fight Night 45 on July 16 at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., according to UFC officials Tuesday.

Barboza (13-2) will try to bounce back from his submission loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 11 in April. He has won three of his past five fights.

Dunham (14-5) also lost to Cerrone in his last fight. He was submitted by a triangle choke at UFC 167 last November. He has lost three of his past five fights.

A featherweight fight between Jim Alers and Lucas Martins has also been set for the card. Alers has won nine straight fights, including his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 39. Martins is moving up to featherweight and has won two of his past three UFC fights.

Donald Cerrone will face Jim Miller in the main event.
