Middleweights Omari Akhmedov and Brad Tavares are expected to meet at UFC’s July 10th event, as first reported by Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.

Akhmedov earned a submission win in January, stopping Tom Breese with an arm triangle choke in the second round. His previous fight, a loss which snapped a three-fight win streak, came against former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman in August.

The only other fight currently reported for UFC’s July 10th card is a flyweight fight between former title challenger Jennifer Maia and Jessica Eye.
