According to Brett Okamoto of ESPN, UFC President Dana White said he is targeting UFC 256 on Dec. 12 for the fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns.
That would put it on the same card as the title fight showdown between Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson.
ESPN's Ariel Helwani noted UFC is also discussing a rematch between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, although such a fight would not be on the same card Usman vs. Burns.
Masvidal and Diaz could square off in January.
