Derek Brunson meets Antonio Braga Neto at UFC Fight for the Troops 3

USA TODAY Sports

The UFC has added a middleweight bout to their third Fight for the Troops card on November 6th.

The UFC has added a fourth middleweight fight to their latest installment of Fight for the Troops. The event, also known as UFC Fight Night 31, goes down on November 6th and will see former Strikeforce fighter Derek Brunson facing off with prospect Antonio Braga Neto. The UFC recently tweeted confirmation of the bout:

Brunson (10-2) made a successful-ish debut in the organization at UFC 155 back in December of 2012 by defeating Chris Leben via decision. The fight was panned by fans and UFC president Dana White because of Brunson's wrestling-based path to victory. He had been expected to face off with Ronny Markes and Yoel Romero recently, but both bouts were scrapped.

Braga Neto (9-1, 1 NC), a former ADCC competitor, picked up a quick submission win over Anthony Smith in his promotional debut at UFC on Fuel 10 in June.

UFC Fight for the Troops 3 will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Tim Kennedy and Lyoto Machida, with the latter making his debut at 185 pounds.
