A fight between ranked heavyweights is on the verge of finalization.

Russia’s Shamil Abdurakhimov and Philadelphia’s Chris Daukaus are targeted to square off at the UFC Fight Night event July 24 at a location and venue that has yet to be announced.

A person with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the targeted booking to MMA Junkie on Friday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. BJPenn.com was the first to report the matchup.

Abdurakhimov (20-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) has not competed since September 2019 when he lost to Curtis Blaydes by TKO due to ground-and-pound. Since that time, he’s struggled to have a scheduled booking come to fruition as he’s encountered three-straight cancellations.

Daukaus (11-3 MMA, 4-0 UFC) burst onto the UFC scene in August 2020. Since then, he’s rattled off three first-round TKO wins over Parker Porter, Rodrigo Nascimento, and Aleksei Oleinik.

With the addition, the UFC Fight Night 192 lineup now includes:

T.J. Dillashaw vs. Cory Sandhagen
