UFC Fight Night 19, a yet-unannounced Spike TV-broadcast UFC event, is expected to take place on August 5th in Las Vegas, according to MMA Junkie. Lightweights Josh Neer and Kurt Pellegrino are likely to square off on the event’s main card.

Neer (25-7-1), a winner of four of his last five fights, most-recently defeated Mac Danzig at UFC Fight Night 17 in February.

Pellegrino (13-4) rebounded from an April 2008 loss to Nate Diaz with back-to-back victories over Thiago Tavares and Rob Emerson.

Additional bouts for UFC Fight Night 19 haven’t yet been revealed, but will pass them along as they become available.
