Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back on television this Saturday night (Nov. 11, 2017) with the UFC Fight Night 120 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, which features a lightweight main event between Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis, who battle for a spot in the 155-pound title chase.
Poirier (21-5, 1 NC) was hoping to run it back with Eddie Alvarez after their no contest at UFC 211; however, “The Diamond” was passed over in favor of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) and like Pettis, will enter this bout with a win over Jim Miller.
To remind fans just how dangerous the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) import can be, the promotion is highlighting his UFC 199 destruction of lightweight veteran Bobby Green, who got popped and dropped midway through the second round back in June 2016.
Will Pettis be next?
UFC Fight Night 120 will also feature the welterweight showdown pitting Matt Brown against Diego Sanchez, while Andrei Arlovski returns to heavyweight action to collide with division up-and-comer Junior Albini.
