Barboza Makes Quick Return vs. Dunham

Exciting lightweights collide in July, as Barboza faces Dunham...
Winner of three of his last four bouts, lightweight action hero Edson Barboza will fight in his adopted home state of New Jersey for the first time since 2011 when he faces Evan Dunham in UFC Fight Night action on July 16 in Atlantic City.

The event at the Revel Casino will see the number 11-ranked striker look to bounce back from his April loss to Donald Cerrone against the talented Dunham, who was forced out of his April bout against Mark Bocek due to injury. But come summer, Las Vegas' Dunham will be ready to go against the Muay Thai ace and his highlight reel arsenal.

Also added to the card is a featherweight meeting between exciting up and comers Jim Alers and Lucas Martins. Martins, who has won two straight, is moving up to the featherweight division to face Alers, whose nine-fight winning streak includes a decision victory over Alan Omer in his UFC debut last month.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night go on sale on May 30. Stay tuned to UFC.com for more details.
