The UFC has reportedly booked a key bantamweight fight, as longtime contender John Dodson has agreed to fight Merab Dvalishvili.

The bantamweights are going to fight at the August 15th, UFC 252 card, according to a report from MMA Junkie. The UFC has yet to officially announce the match-up.

Dodson (21-11) is coming off a stoppage win over Nathaniel Wood in February, after dropping consecutive fights to Petra Yan and Jimmie Rivera.

Dvalishvili (11-4) worked his way to a decision win over Gustavo Lopez in June, and has won four in  a row.

UFC 252 will be headlined by a rubber match between heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.
