UFC FN 55: Ross Pearson to Face Al Iaquinta in Co-Headliner
By FCF Staff
The upcoming event will be hosted by the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia on November 8th, and will feature a middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold in the headliner.
Iaquinta (9-3-1) recorded a third round, stoppage win over Rodrigo Damm in his last outing, which took place at a UFC Fight Night card in September. The victory returned the American to the winner’s circle, as he was choked out by Mitch Clarke at UFC 173 in May.
Pearson (16-7), meanwhile, took out Gray Maynard with strikes in the second round at a Fight Night card in August, after losing a controversial, split decision to Diego Sanchez in June. The British fighter is 3-1, with 1 no contest, in his last 5 scraps.
Some of the other bouts that are scheduled for UFC FN 55 include Robert Whittaker vs. Clint Hester, Daniel Omielanczuk vs. Soa Palelei, and Jake Matthews vs. Vagner Rocha.
