Tickets for the event will go on sale Friday, July 11.
Henderson (21-3) is coming off a fourth round submission win over Rustam Khabilov in his last outing earlier this month. Henderson it was his first stoppage win since 2010, and his second win since losing his lightweight belt to Anthony Pettis at UFC 164.
Dos Anjos (21-7) is coming off an impressive TKO win over Jason High on the same UFC Fight Night card that Ben Henderson fought on earlier this month. It was a nice bounce back win for dos Anjos who had his five fight winning streak snapped in his previous outing against the surging Khabib Nurmagomedov.
