Ricky Simon and Brian Kelleher are set to collide next month.

According to MMA Fighting, a bantamweight bout between the pair is in the works for the UFC’s upcoming September 5 event.

The event will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Augusto Sakai and is expected to take place at the Apex facility in Las Vegas.

Simon returned to the win column with a split decision victory over Ray Borg back in May. That win snapped a two-fight losing skid that saw Simon lose to Urijah Faber and Rob Font. Before that, the 27-year-old started his UFC career with a 3-0 run including victories over Merab Dvalishvili, Montel Jackson and Rani Yahya.

Kelleher, meanwhile, suffered defeat in his most recent outing after a unanimous decision loss to Cody Stamann at UFC 250 in June. That setback stopped a two-fight winning run that saw him submit Ode Osbourne in January and knock out Hunter Azure in May.

Both fighters will be looking for a decisive win that inserts them into the top 15 of the bantamweight division, which at the moment, may be the most stacked weight class in the UFC today.
