Former middleweight champion Anderson Silva could battle Kelvin Gastelum when the UFC headlines in China for the first time.

According to Damon Martin of FloCombat, the pair will main-event in Shanghai on Nov. 25.

Octagon legend Silva has not fought since February after edging out Derek Brunson at UFC 208. 

Per Martin, the pair were due to face off last June, but Gastelum was temporarily suspended after failing a drug test for marijuana.

Gastelum is now sanctioned to fight again, and the 25-year-old winner of The Ultimate Fighter 17 will like his chances against the aging veteran.

More prospective fights for the card are due to be announced shortly.
