The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build out its upcoming schedule, and it’s being reported that the promotion is working on a fight between Stephen Thompson and Geoff Neal.

The UFC is hoping to have the welterweights fight at the promotion’s December 19th card, according to a report from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.

Thompson (15-4-1) hasn’t fought since last November, when he recorded a decision win over Vicente Luque. ‘Wonderboy’ is 2-3 in his last 5 fights.

Neal (13-2), meanwhile, hasn’t competed since December, when he stopped Mike Perry. Neal has won seven straight bouts.

Currently Thompson is ranked #5 in the UFC’s welterweight division and Neal is #11.
