By FCF Staff
The bantamweight contenders have verbally agreed to battle at the UFC’s March 28th card in Columbus, according to a report from ESPN.
Garbrandt (11-3) is looking to end a three-fight losing streak. Following consecutive losses to T.J. Dillashaw, the former champion was stopped by Pedro Munhoz this past March.
Assuncao (27-7), meanwhile, is coming off back-to-back losses to Marlon Moraes and Cory Sandhagen. The decision defeat to Sandhagen took place in August.
The upcoming event in Columbus will feature a heavyweight fight between Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruik in the headliner.
