Myles Jury injured: Paul Felder booked to face Edson Barboza at UFC on FOX 16 on July 25

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

This fight was originally Anthony Pettis vs. Myles Jury, but "Showtime" got hurt and was replaced by Edson Barboza.

Now Jury is injured and unable to compete, so Paul Felder will step in on short notice to face Barboza in a 155-pound affair at the upcoming UFC on FOX 16: "Dillashaw vs. Barao 2" mixed martial arts (MMA) event on July 25, 2015, inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

UFC announced the change on Tuesday.

Barboza (15-3) is hoping to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Michael Johnson last February, while Felder (10-0) has been perfect in his combat sports career and was last seen planting Danny Castillo in Las Vegas.

Fun fight!

UFC on FOX 16 will settle the longstanding score between reigning bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and the man he stripped of the title, Brazilian bomber Renan Barao. Elsewhere on the card, Miesha Tate tries to earn a third crack at Ronda Rousey by stopping Jessica Eye.
