All of the competitors made weight this afternoon at Kentucky’s Fort Campbell, in preparation for tomorrow’s “Fight for the Troops” event. That’s right, there are not one, but two UFC’s this week.
Kennedy, who will be the local favourite on account of his decorated career as a soldier, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Roger Gracie at UFC 162. The former Strikeforce contender has gone 4-1 in his last five scraps, with his only loss during that stretch coming against Luke Rockhold. Kennedy also defeated welterweight contender Robbie Lawler during his run with Strikeforce.
Natal, meanwhile, fought at UFC FN 28 in September and handed Tor Troeng a UD loss. The noted grappler has won three straight fights and is 4-1 in his last five.
In the co-main-event, Liz Carmouche will battle bantamweight Alexis Davis, and the two weighed in at 135 and 134 respectively. Carmouche scored a stoppage win over Jessica Andrade in her last bout at UFC on FOX 8, and Davis earned a UD win over Rosi Sexton at UFC 161 in June.
Here are the official weigh-in results for UFC FN 31, which went down without any major incident. Hopefully it’s a great afternoon / night of fights. Stay tuned to Caged Insider.com for all your UFC news and coverage.
