Now that UFC 217 is in the books — complete results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for a quick turnaround, as UFC Fight Night 120 is set to go down inside Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday Nov. 11, 2017.
The Fox Sports 1 event will feature a pivotal Lightweight showdown as former division champion Anthony Pettis will face Dustin Poirier in what is sure to be a stand up war. “Showtime” is looking to collect back-to-back wins at 155 pounds for the first time in a long time after making the jump back up following a less than stellar tenure at Featherweight.
As for Poirier, he will look to get back on the winning track after fighting to a draw against Eddie Alvarez in his last outing. With a win, Dustin will collect the biggest win of his career and cement his standing in a 155-pound weight class that is filled to the brim with contenders eager for their invitation to the big dance.
Also, Matt Brown and Diego Sanchez will collide in the co-main event in a fight that could provide fireworks in the leading candidate to win “Fight of the Night” honors. Also, Andrei Arlovski makes his return to face Junior Albini in Heavyweight action.
