The UFC hasn’t announced anything yet, but Demian Maia and Ben Askren have agreed to battle later this year.

The welterweights recently agreed in a Twitter exchange to fight on October 26th. The UFC is expected to host a card in Singapore on that date.

Askren (19-1, 1 no-contest) is coming off a vicious, knockout loss to Jorge Masvidal last month. Maia (27-9), meanwhile, worked his way to a decision win over Rocco Martin in his last bout, which took place in June.
