After injuries have forced their original opponents to withdraw from scheduled bouts, Marcus Brimage and Jumabieke Tuerxun have been booked to fight at UFC Fight Night 55 on November 8th.

Brimage was originally scheduled to fight Erik Perez at UFC 180 in Mexico on November 15th, but the latter has pulled out due to a reported shoulder injury.

Tuerxun, meanwhile, was set to face Patrick Williams at UFC FN 55, which will be hosted by the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Tuerxun (14-2) is looking to rebound from consecutive losses to Mark Eddiva and Leandro Issa, while Brimage (6-3) is coming off defeats to Conor McGregor and Russell Doane.

UFC FN 55 will be headlined by a middleweight fight between contenders Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping.
