A new report says that Colby Covington will face Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight championship at UFC 224. BJPenn.com reports that the fight is in the works, but is not finalized quite yet. The UFC has yet to announce it and an official said that “nothing [is] official yet.”

The fight, if confirmed, would set an interim champion due to Tyron Woodley being out since last July due to an injury. Woodley has said he is targeting a return at UFC 226 in July of this year.

UFC 224 takes place on May 12th in Rio de Janeiro, with the main card airing live on PPV after prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
