The UFC has confirmed that a lightweight fight between contenders Tony Ferguson and Michael Chiesa has been booked for July 13th. The bout will headline UFC Fight Night 91, which will take place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Chiesa (14-2) has been tapped for the high profile fight, after submitting Beneil Dariush at UFC on FOX 19 last month. Chiesa has won three straight fights and is now ranked #9 at 155.

Ferguson (20-3) is riding a seven fight winning streak, and is coming off a submission win over Edson Barboza in December. Ferguson was scheduled to fight top contender, Khabib Nurmagomedov last month, but a lung injured forced him to withdraw.

UFC FN 91 will be hosted by the Denny Sanford Premier Center.
