Islam Makhachev and Thiago Moises are set to face off at a UFC event scheduled for July 17.
Multiple people with knowledge of the booking confirmed to MMA Fighting that verbal agreements are in place with contracts expected to be signed after an initial report from ESPN.com. The July 17 booking’s city and venue have not been confirmed.
The July 17 event’s headliner has not been announced. As MMA Fighting previously reported, ex-bantamweight champ Miesha Tate will come out of retirement to face Marion Reneau in what’s been billed as Reneau’s retirement fight.
