UFC officials confirmed the matchup this morning.
UFC Fight Night 45 goes down on July 16 from the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. The card will feature a main event between Jim Miller and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.
Both men are probably looking at a possible UFC exodus with a loss.
Tibau last saw action in December where, his opponent, Michael Johnson was able to secure a second round TKO at UFC 168. The defeat snapped a two-fight winning streak.
Healy, also coming off a loss, is still on the hunt for his first UFC win.
The Strikeforce veteran made waves in his debut, besting Jim Mille for three-straight rounds. Unfortunately though, he came up short in his post-fight drug test, failing for marijuana, which overturned the victory. Since that bout he’s gone 0-3 losing to Nurmagomedov, Green and Masvidal respectively.
The latest UFC Fight Night 45 card looks as follows:
Donald Cerrone vs. Jim Miller
Pat Healy vs. Gleison Tibau
John Howard vs. Rick Story
John Lineker vs. Alptekin Ozkilic
Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana
