The UFC are closing in on booking Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington for UFC 245. The welterweight title bout would be the third and heaviest belt on the line in Las Vegas on December 14.

UFC 245 also sees Max Holloway defend his UFC featherweight strap against Alexander Volkanovski as well as women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes facing Germaine de Randamie.

Robbie Lawler vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio and Matt Brown vs. Ben Saunders will also feature on the stacked UFC 245 bill.

UFC 245 Card (so far):

Welterweight title fight: Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington

Featherweight title fight: Max Holloway vs. Alexander Volkanovski

Women's bantamweight title fight: Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie

Welterweight: Robbie Lawler vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio

Welterweight: Matt Brown vs. Ben Saunders

Usman vs. Covington was originally targetted for UFC's New York card in November, but the company failed to strike a deal with the pair of fighters as they eventually booked Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz.

Holloway will make the fourth defence of his 145lbs title against surging Australian contender Volkanovski, who's unbeaten inside the famed Octagon and on a seven-fight winning streak which includes a victory over Jose Aldo.

'Champ-champ' Nunes will defend her women's bantamweight title versus De Randamie in her second outing of 2019, following her stunning victory over Holly Holm in July.

UFC 245 will be the promotion's traditional end-of-year pay-per-view card.
