A lightweight clash between Paul Felder and James Vick is currently in the works for the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Boise, Idaho on July 14.

Now Felder will make his return to action in July as he rides a three fight win streak with all of his recent victories coming by way of knockout or TKO.
As for Vick, he’s won his last four fights in a row with an overall record of 9-1 in the UFC since joining the promotion by way of “The Ultimate Fighter”. Vick has been anxiously awaiting the chance to face a top 15 fighter and now he’ll get his wish with Felder in July.
The matchup between Felder and Vick joins a growing line up headed to Boise with former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos expected to face Blagoy Ivanov in the main event.
