The UFC is working on booking a light-heavyweight fight between Ryan Bader and Ilir Latifi, MMA Fighting has learned.

While that's the fight the promotion wants to make, they have yet to finalize when it will take place.

Bader (20-5) had his five-fight winning streak snapped in January when he was knocked out by Anthony Johnson, while Latifi (12-4, 1 NC) has won his last three in a row.

Both men recently expressed interesting fighting via Twitter earlier this year.
