The line-up for UFC Fight Night 55 in Sydney, Australia continues to grow, as the promotion has confirmed that bantamweights Jumabieke Tuerxun and Patrick Williams have agreed to fight.

The upcoming bout will be hosted by Sydney’s Allphones Arena and will be broadcast throughout North America on UFC Fight Pass.

MMA Kanvas was the first to report that verbal agreements are in place for the bout, and the UFC has retweeted news of the match-up.

Tuerxun (14-2) is looking to get back on tack after being decisioned by Mark Eddiva and tapped out by Leandro Issa in his first two, UFC outings.

Williams (7-4) is also coming off a defeat, as he was knocked out by Chris Beal in his Octagon debut, which went down in April.

UFC FN 55 will feature a middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold in the main event.
