Ross Pearson will square off against James Krause in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night in Belfast on Nov. 19.
Promotion officials announced the matchup on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at SSE Arena and is headlined by a welterweight duel between Dong Hyun Kim and Gunnar Nelson. The card will air in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Pearson has lost three of his last for Octagon appearances thus far in 2016, with his only victory coming against Chad Laprise at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Mir.” Most recently, “The Real Deal” dropped a three-round verdict to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 201 on July 30.
Krause, meanwhile, enters the bout on the strength of back-to-back wins over Shane Campbell and Daron Cruickshank. The 30-year-old Missouri native is 4-3 during his promotional tenure overall.
