UFC 245 keeps on getting more stacked.

A welterweight bout between Geoff Neal and Mike Perry is in the works for the Dec. 14 pay-per-view card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, ESPN reported Wednesday night. UFC officials have yet to confirm the news.

In Neal’s last fight, “Handz of Steel” defeated Niko Price by second-round TKO at UFC 240 in July. The Fortis MMA product is 4-0 in the UFC, including a decision over Belal Muhammad and a brutal knockout of Frank Camacho.

Perry is coming off a narrow, split-decision loss to Vicente Luque at UFC Uruguay in August. “Platinum” is 2-2 is his past four outings, including wins over Alex Oliveira and current lightweight contender Paul Felder.

UFC 245 is expected to be headlined by a welterweight title fight between champ Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Also on the card, featherweight titleholder Max Holloway meets Alexander Volkanovski, and two-division champion Amanda Nunes defends her 135-pound belt against Germaine de Randamie.
