Plans are reportedly in motion to add another pivotal fight to UFC 200, as the promotion is hoping to add TJ Dillashaw – Raphael Assuncao to the July 9th card.

The UFC’s plans were reported in the latest edition of “UFC Tonight”.

Dillashaw (12-3) hasn’t fought since January when he lost the 135 title to Dominick Cruz via split decision. Dillashaw fought Assuncao in 2013 and also lost that bout via split decision.

Assuncao (23-4), meanwhile, has won seven straight fights. The bantamweight contender hasn’t fought, however, since 2014 when he decisioned Bryan Caraway.

UFC 200 will be headlined by Daniel Cormier – Jon Jones II, and will take place in Las Vegas.
