By Tristen Critchfield Aug 17, 2017

The lineup for UFC Fight Night 120 continues to grow, as the promotion announced three more bouts for the Nov. 11 event in Norfolk, Va.

In a pair of middleweight contests, Nate Marquardt will meet Cezar Ferreira, while Karl Roberson will take on Darren Stewart. Additionally, Marcel Fortuna will square off against Jake Collier in the light heavyweight division.

UFC Fight Night 120 takes place at the Ted Constant Convocation Center and is headlined by a lightweight duel between Anthony Pettis and Dustin Poirier. The card is expect to be televised on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

A former middleweight title challenger, Marquardt is coming off back-to-back decision losses to Vitor Belfort and Sam Alvey. Ferreira saw a three-fight winning streak come to an end at UFC Fight Night 105, when he fell to Elias Theodorou via unanimous decision.

Roberson earned a UFC contract thanks to a 15-second knockout of Ryan Spann on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series 3 on July 25. Stewart, meanwhile, suffered the first loss of his pro career at UFC Fight Night 107, dropping a unanimous verdict to Francimar Barroso.

After knocking out Anthony Hamilton in his Octagon debut, Fortuna was outpointed by Jordan Johnson in his sophomore outing at “The Ultimate Fighter 25” finale. Collier is 2-3 during his promotional tenure, including a decision loss to Devin Clark in his most recent outing at UFC on Fox 24.
