A lightweight duel between Daron Cruickshank and James Krause has been added to the UFC on Fox 16 lineup.

Promotion officials recently announced the bout. UFC on Fox 16 takes place at the United Center in Chicago on July 25 and is headlined by a bantamweight title rematch between T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao.

Cruickshank, 29, was submitted by Beneil Daruish in his first appearance of 2015, as he succumbed to a rear-naked choke 2:48 into the second round at UFC 185. “The Detroit Superstar” is 6-4 during his Octagon tenure, including triumphs over Yves Edwards, Erik Koch and Anthony Njokuani.

Krause, meanwhile, has lost three of his last four within the Las Vegas-based promotion. Most recently, the 28-year-old dropped a split decision to Valmir Lazaro at UFC 184. Krause’s last victory came against Jamie Varner at UFC 173.
