It's only been a couple of days since the UFC announced the main event of UFC Fight Night 31: Fight for the Troops 3 on November 6th in Fort Campbell, KY, but they're not wasting any time filling up the rest of the card. A total of three bouts have been added to the event. Here are the twitter confirmations of each bout, courtesy of the UFC:
Yoel Romero (5-1), a former Olympic wrestler, made his UFC and middleweight debut against Clifford Starks at UFC on Fox 7 and picked up a big first-round knockout. That earned him a knockout of the night bonus. Ronny Markes (14-1) is 3-0 in the UFC thus far and 2-0 at middleweight. His last fight was a decision win over Andrew Craig at UFC on FX 7 in January.
Chris Camozzi (19-6) had a four-fight win streak stopped when he stepped up as a late replacement to take on Ronaldo Souza at UFC on FX 8. He was submitted in the first round. Lorenz Larkin (13-1, 1 NC) made his UFC debut against Francis Carmont at UFC on Fox 7 and dropped a controversial decision to pick up his first official loss.
Neil Magny (8-2) is 1-1 in the UFC thus far, beating Jon Manley by decision in his debut, then getting submitted by Sergio Moraes in his last fight. Seth Baczynski (18-10) has dropped two bouts in a row, getting decisioned by Mike Pierce and most recently getting knocked out by Brian Melancon. He badly needs a win here to continue to ply his trade in the octagon.
The event will be headlined by a middleweight bout featuring Tim Kennedy taking on Lyoto Machida in his debut at 185. The only other fight announced for the card so far is a lightweight battle between Jorge Masvidal and Rustam Khabilov.
