The first bout for the UFC’s July card in San Diego has been announced, as Josh Thomson takes on Tony Ferguson.

Set for July 15 from the San Diego Valley View Casino Center, the main card is expected to air live on FOX Sports 1.

Thomson (20-7) was trying his hand at matchmaker over the weekend, attempting to book himself vs. Ross Pearson for this date. Instead, he’ll take on a former Ultimate Fighter winner in Ferguson.

Ferguson (18-3) has won eight of his nine Octagon fights, including five in a row.
