UFC Moncton is adding more Canadian content.

Officials announced Friday that Quebec-based fighter Nordine Taleb will fight Sean Strickland in a welterweight contest on the Oct. 27 event at the Moncton Events Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick.

This matchup pits two UFC veterans against one another, as both have compiled 6-3 records in nine Octagon appearances each.
