A lightweight bout has been added to UFC 165 in September as Khabib Nurmagomedov will meet Pat Healy.
UFC officials announced the fight booking on Sunday evening and the bout is expected to be place on the main card broadcast on pay-per-view.
UFC 165 will come from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on September 21st and will be headlined by Jon Jones defending the UFC light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson.
Nurmagomedov (20-0) made his UFC debut at the beginning of 2012 and has won his first four fights in the promotion. He most recently defeated Abel Trujillo at UFC 160 by unanimous decision.
Healy (29-16, 1NC) came back to the UFC earlier this year and initially defeated Jim Miller by submission in the third round. However, the fight was declared a no contest by the commission after Healy tested positive for a banned substance. He received a suspension for the positive drug test and this will be his first fight since coming off suspension.
