    Rick Story vs. John Howard slated for UFC Fight Night 45

    Welterweights Rick Story (16-8 MMA, 9-6 UFC) and John Howard (22-9 MMA, 6-4 UFC) will meet at the UFC’s summer return to New Jersey.

    UFC officials today announced the 170-pounders have verbally agreed to meet at UFC Fight Night 45.

    The event takes place July 16 at Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J. The bulk of the card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

    It’s not clear where Story vs. Howard will be placed on the lineup.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    It's like a blast from the past. This would have been a very logical matchup with a similar story line (two guys trying to break into the upper echelons), what, four years ago? Craziness!

    I'm a HUGE Rick Story fan.
    It's been hard watching him stumble over the past few years... always in those important fights too.
    But this has the makings of a barn burner!
    Good Match-Up!!!!

    John Howard's a really cool guy with a helluva work ethic. Story's reputation makes me root against him, but his striking has started to look a lot cleaner and proficient.

    I'll take Story if he can avoid the dogfight, but Howard reminds me a bit like Pat Healy, in that he's just a damn grinder.

    I really feel like Story won his last fight against Kelvin. Hopefully he can get a few wins going, he has a lot of potential in my eyes.
