The UFC has announced another bout for its July 16th card in Atlantic City, New Jersey, as flyweight contender John Lineker will battle Alptekin Ozkillic.

The upcoming, UFC FN 45 card will be hosted by the Revel Casino Hotel, and will feature Jim Miller taking on fellow top ranked lightweight Donald Cerrone.

Lineker (23-7) will be looking to rebound from the unanimous decision loss he suffered versus Ali Bagautinov in February, which ended his four fight win streak. The Brazilian fighter is currently ranked #7 in the UFC’s 125 pound division.

Ozkillic (9-2) is coming off a UD loss to Louis Smolka in January, after winning four straight bouts. The American was scheduled to battle Dustin Ortiz at UFC FN 39 on April 11, but had to withdraw due to injury.

UFC FN 45 is expected to be broadcast on UFC FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
