A welterweight bout between Court McGee and Sean Strickland has been added to UFC Fight Night 120’s lineup.

Both McGee (18-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC) and Strickland (18-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) will look to bounce back from losses when they meet on Nov. 11 at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va.

The event airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

“The Ultimate Fighter 11” winner McGee was last seen in the octagon in January, when the judges unanimously declared Ben Saunders the winner of a UFC Fight Night 103 bout. McGee has been on a see-saw of wins and losses since a split call over current interim middleweight champ Robert Whittaker at UFC Fight Night 27 in 2013.

Strickland, in turn, was riding a three-fight winning streak when a UFC 210 unanimous-decision setback to “The Ultimate Fighter 21” winner Kamaru Usman halted his momentum. Prior to that, the 26-year-old fighter had only lost once in the octagon – a UFC Fight Night 61 decision to Santiago Ponzinibbio.

The latest UFC Fight Night 120 card now includes:

  • Anthony Pettis vs. Dustin Poirier
  • Matt Brown vs. Diego Sanchez
  • Nina Ansaroff vs. Angela Hill
  • Cezar Ferreira vs. Nate Marquardt
  • Karl Roberson vs. Darren Stewart
  • Jake Collier vs. Marcel Fortuna
  • Junior Albini vs. Andrei Arlovski
  • Court McGee vs. Sean Strickland
