Report: Myles Jury vs. Rick Glenn added to UFC 219 in Las Vegas

An intriguing bantamweight bout appears to be on for UFC 219.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing sources close to the UFC, reported Wednesday that Myles Jury will fight Rick Glenn at the event being held Dec. 30 at T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 219 features a pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Jury (16-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) vs. Glenn (20-4-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) marks the sixth bout added to the lineup.

Jury returned earlier this year at UFC 210 after more than a year away and won by first-round TKO over Mike De La Torre. It was a resounding response from Jury, who had previously lost back-to-back fights following a 15-0 start to his career.

Glenn, a former WSOF champion, will enter the fight riding the momentum of consecutive wins this year. He scored decisions over Phillipe Nover and Gavin Tucker at UFC 208 and UFC 215, respectively, in response to a loss in his UFC debut last year.

With the addition, the UFC 219 lineup now includes:

  • Dominick Cruz vs. Jimmie Rivera
  • Carlos Condit vs. Neil Magny
  • Cynthia Calvillo vs. Carla Esparza
  • Matheus Nicolau vs. Louis Smolka
  • Khalil Rountree vs. Gokhan Saki
  • Myles Jury vs. Rick Glenn
