Two light heavyweights will look to get back on track at UFC Brasilia.

A bout between Johnny Walker and Nikita Krylov is in the works for the March 14 card in Brasilia, Brazil, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani and MMA Junkie's Nolan King.

Known for his flashy style in the cage and post-fight theatrics, Walker made waves early in his Octagon tenure but most recently lost to Corey Anderson by first-round TKO at UFC 244 in November. The loss snapped a nine-fight winning streak, which included knockouts of Misha Cirkunov and Khalil Rountree. Walker signed with the promotion in 2018 and holds an Octagon record of 3-1.

Krylov has shown potential throughout a UFC career that dates back to 2013, but he's ultimately found mixed results in the promotion. After four wins on the regional circuit, "The Miner" began his second UFC stint last year and is 1-2 since. Krylov's last fight was a split-decision loss to Glover Teixeira. He submitted Ovince Saint Preux in a rematch prior to that.

No main event has been officially announced for UFC Brasilia.
