Following their respective wins last month, both Paul Craig and “Shogun” Rua said they were interested in fighting again, and it looks like that’s going to happen.

Rua (27-11) and Craig (13-4) fought last November, and the fight was declared a draw. Last month at the UFC’s July 26th card, Rua defeated Antonio Rogerio Nogueira by split decision, and Craig submitted Gadzhimurad Antigulov.

After the card, both light heavyweights relayed they would agree to a rematch. Now ESPN is reporting the fight has been added to the November 21st, UFC 255 event (according to sources).

UFC 255 will also feature flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo taking on Cody Garbrandt and flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko battling Jennifer Maia.
