Undefeated bantamweight Aljamain Sterling has been booked for his next fight, as the New York fighter will take on Frankie Saenz at UFC Fight Night 55 on November 8th.

That card will be hosted by the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia, and will feature Michael Bisping taking on fellow middleweight contender Luke Rockhold.

The 25 year-old Sterling (10-0) has decisioned Cody Gibson and stopped Hugo Viana since joining the UFC earlier this year.

Saenz (9-2) has fought just once in the Octagon thus far, as the Arizona fighter is coming off a decision win over Nolan Ticman in August. The 34 year-old has won 5 straight bouts.

Some of the other fights that are booked for UFC FN 55 include Ross Pearson vs. Al Iaquinta, Clint Hester vs. Robert Whittaker, Guto Inocente vs. Anthony Perosh and Jake Matthews vs. Vagner Rocha.
