The UFC has announced two new fight bookings for UFC Fight Night 98 on November 5 in Mexico City as Chris Avila will meet Enrique Barzola in a featherweight bout and Enrique Briones faces Douglas Silva de Andrade in a bantamweight bout.

UFC officials announced the fight booking on Tuesday evening.

UFC Fight Night 98 will come from the Arena Ciudad de Mexico and will be headlined by former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos facing Ultimate Fighter 13 winner Tony Ferguson.
