A fantastic featherweight is going down in July, but not on the date originally reported.
Last month, Cageside Press reported that No. 14 ranked featherweight Shane Burgos will fight Charles Jourdain at UFC 276 on July 2 as part of International Fight Week. However, Eurosport NL reported on Thursday that the fight will actually be taking place July 16 in the UFC’s return to Long Island, NY. Both Burgos and Jourdain would confirm the fight on their social media.

Burgos (14-3) got back into the win column at UFC 268 when he and Billy Quarantillo put on an absolute show. The “Hurricane” won the fight via unanimous decision, where he snapped the first two-fight losing streak of his career. Burgos will be defending his No. 14 ranking.
Jourdain (13-4) is riding his first winning inside of the UFC. In his last outing, he submitted Lando Vanatta in less than three minutes at UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs. Andrade. Prior to that, he defeated Andre Ewell via unanimous decision on the last UFC fight card of 2021.
UFC Long Island (UFC on ABC 3) is set to take place on July 16, 2022 at the UBS Arena in Elmont, Long Island, NY.
