Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight titleholder Anthony Pettis will collide with top contender Dustin Poirier at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 120 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, set for this Saturday (Nov. 11, 2017) inside Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia.
Pettis (20-6) recently returned to the win column — as well as the 155-pound weight class — after getting knocked around in the featherweight division. “Showtime” was last seen outpointing the rough-and-tumble Jim Miller at UFC 213 back in July.
Poirier (21-5, 1 NC), meanwhile, 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.

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.
