The UFC is targeting Derek Brunson vs. Israel Adesanya for UFC 230 in November, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported Wednesday evening. However, as of yet, the fight is not finalized.

UFC: Israel Adesanya vs Derek Brunson targeted for UFC 230 - Brunson

Over the past few weeks, Brunson (18-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) has been calling out unbeaten rising middleweight Israel Adesanya (14-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) for a matchup.

Brunson posted a video on Twitter where he provided a date, venue, and was also sure to disclose his specific intentions going into the potential bout.

Brunson is coming off a first-round knockout loss to Ronaldo Souza in January. That defeat snapped a two-fight winning streak, which consisted of knockouts over former light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida and Daniel Kelly.

Adesanya made his UFC debut in February, stopping Mike Wilkinson in the second round at UFC 221. Most recently, the undefeated 29-year-old beat veteran Tavares by one-sided decision.

UFC 230 takes place Nov. 3 in New York City at the Madison Square Garden.
