The UFC’s “Fight for the Troops III” card is nearing completion, as the promotion has added two more bouts to the November 6th event, which will be hosted by Kentucky’s Fort Campbell. At lightweight, Bobby Green will thrown down with James Krause and at bantamweight, Alexis Davis will battle Liz Carmouche.
Green (20-5) will be looking to build on the submission win he scored over Jacob Volkmann at UFC 156 in February, which was the “King’s” fifth straight victory. The victory over Volkmann was also Green’s UFC debut.
Krause (20-4) is also coming off an impressive performance in his first Octagon outing, as he tapped out Sam Stout with a third round, guillotine choke at UFC 161 in June. The WEC vet has won eight scraps in a row.
Carmouche (9-3) scored a stoppage win over Jessica Andrade at UFC on FOX 8 in July, after getting tapped out by champion Ronda Rousey in February at UFC 157.
Davis (14-5), meanwhile, made her Octagon debut at UFC 161 and worked her way to a unanimous decision win over Rosi Sexton. The bantamweight has won three consecutive fights.
Both these fights have some good potential. “Fight for the Troops III”, or UFC FN 31, will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 and will feature a middleweight tilt between Lyoto Machida and Tim Kennedy in the main event.
