Nothing has been finalized or announced yet, but according to a new report, the UFC is working on an interim welterweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington.

The bout, if signed, would be part of UFC 224 on May 12th. The targeted bout was reported first by BJ Penn.com’s Chris Taylor.

Dos Anjos (28-9) is coming off a one sided decision win over Robbie Lawler in December, which was the former lightweight champ’s fifth straight win.

Covington (13-1) earned a decision win over Demian Maia in his last bout, which took place in October, and has won five in a row.

It hasn’t even been a year yet since the champion Tyron Woodley last competed. Woodley worked his way to a decision win over Maia last July.
