Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will try to fend off rising challenger Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC on FOX 25.

Set for July 22, the card takes place from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

Weidman (13-3) finds himself on a three-fight losing skid, having been finished by Gegard Mousasi, Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold. The loss to Rockhold was for the middleweight title.

Gastelum (13-2) was scheduled to meet Anderson Silva, but a failed drug test scrapped that bout. It also reversed a win over Vitor Belfort this past March to a no-contest.

Below is the current fight card:

Middleweight: Chris Weidman vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Light Heavyweight: Gian Villante vs. Patrick Cummins

Lightweight: Chris Wade vs. Frankie Perez

Bantamweight: Jimmie Rivera vs. Thomas Almeida
