Fresh from an impressive second-round TKO of Gray Maynard in August, Ross Pearson will travel to Sydney, Australia to face New York's Al Iaquinta in the co-main event of the UFC Fight Night event at Allphones Arena on November 8.
In the main event, Luke Rockhold meets Michael Bisping in a clash of middleweight contenders.
England's Pearson is unbeaten in four of his last five bouts, showing off the form that won him The Ultimate Fighter back in 2009. TUF 15 finalist Iaquinta is 4-1 in his last five outings, most recently stopping Rodrigo Damm in September.
