Sage Northcutt will return to 155 pounds to face Michel Quinones at UFC Fight Night 120.

The UFC recently confirmed the pairing to ESPN.com along with a bantamweight tilt pitting Raphael Assuncao against Matthew Lopez. UFC Fight Night 120 takes place at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., on Nov. 11 and is topped by a lightweight duel between Anthony Pettis and Dustin Poirier.

Northcutt is unbeaten in three UFC appearances at lightweight but has lost to Mickey Gall and Bryan Barberena at 170 pounds in the Octagon. Quinones, meanwhile, fell to Jared Gordon via second-round TKO in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25.

Assuncao has won nine of his last 10 UFC bouts, including back-to-back split decisions over Marlon Moraes and Aljamain Sterling. After losing to Rani Yahya in his Octagon debut, Lopez has defeated Mitch Gagnon and Johnny Eduardo in his last two UFC outings.
