Dwight Grant vs. Li Jingliang targeted for UFC 256

It appears an interesting welterweight clash will go down in Las Vegas on Dec. 12.

Dwight Grant vs. Li Jingliang has been targeted, though not yet signed, for UFC 256 at the UFC Apex. MMA Junkie confirmed an initial report by MMA Fighting.

The veteran Jingliang (17-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) is looking to rebound from his first loss in awhile, which was a unanimous decision loss to Neil Magny at UFC 248. The loss snapped a three-fight win streak for the 32-year-old Beijing native.

Grant (10-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC), meanwhile, is also looking to shake off a loss in his last outing. The former Contender Series competitor suffered a first-round KO at the hands of Daniel Rodriguez.

UFC 256’s main event has not yet been named, although a title fight between women’s featherweight champion Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson has already been announced for the card.
