UFC Fight Night 42: Rafael dos Anjos vs. Jason High booked for June 7 in Albuquerque

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

RDA and "The Kansas City Bandit" are set to slug it out in "The Duke City."

No rest for the weary.

After having his five-fight win streak snapped by Khabib Nurmagomedov earlier this month at UFC on FOX 11, Rafael dos Anjos will jump right back on the saddle to face Jason High at UFC Fight Night 42 on June 7, 2014.

FOX Sports confirmed the match up earlier today.

The event -- which airs on FOX Sports 1 -- will go down from inside Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, New Mexico, home of the famed Jackson-Winkeljon Mixed Martial Arts camp.

Dos Anjos was on the cusp of title contention before running into "The Eagle" in Orlando. Nurmagomedov dominated the three-round fight with his grappling, soaring his way up the 155-pound rankings while forcing the Brazilian to start from scratch.

It won't get any easier for the Brazilian, as High has been electric since losing to Erick Silva in his UFC debut back in 2013, racking up consecutive victories over James Head and most recently against Anthony Lapsley at UFC 167.

Those fights, however, were in the welterweight division, and the Dos Anjos tilt will mark High's 155-pound debut after competing his entire career at 170 pounds.

UFC Fight Night 42 will feature a main event between former UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson taking on Rustam Khabilov, as well as an intriguing dog fight between Diego Sanchez and Ross Pearson.

Elsewhere on the card, John Dodson faces John Moraga in flyweight action.
