An interesting featherweight contest has been added to a stacked UFC on FOX 17 card. Myles Jury will drop to 145 pounds and meet Charles Oliveira.

The bout was announced on Wednesday's edition of UFC Tonight.

Jury (15-1), of San Diego, won his first 15 pro fights, including his first six in the UFC. But he lost to Donald Cerrone in his biggest career test at UFC 182, then had to withdraw from a scheduled July bout with Edson Barboza due to injury.

The 25-year-old Oliveira (20-5, 1 NC), meanwhile, ran off four straight wins in the featherweight division leading up to an August fight with Max Holloway. A fluke esophageal injury, however, caused Oliveira to drop the fight in under two minutes.

The Dec. 19 card will be headlined by Rafael dos Anjos' lightweight title defense against Cerrone.
