Following Jared Cannonier‘s memorable win at the TUF 24 Finale last weekend, it looks like he may be tapped for a bout with one of the UFC’s best 205’ers.

According to a report from MMA Fighting.com, multiple sources are reporting the UFC is looking at having Cannonier fight Glover Teixeira at UFC 208. The card will take place on February 11th in Brooklyn, New York.

Cannonier (9-1) worked his way to a thrilling, decision victory over Ion Cutelaba on Saturday, which followed his KO win over Cyril Asker in April.

Teixeira (25-5) is looking to get back on track after he was quickly taken out by Anthony Johnson at UFC 202 in August. Teixeira, who is ranked #3 at 205, was scheduled to fight Jimi Manuwa on January 21st. But, the event has since been cancelled.
