A welterweight matchup between Seth Baczynski and Neil Magny is headed to Fort Campbell, Kentucky for UFC Fight for the Troops 3. UFC officials announced the pairing on Thursday.
Both fighters come into the bout in search of much-needed victories after disappointing losses in their last outings. Magny found himself on the wrong end of a nasty triangle from Sergio Moraes at UFC 163, dropping him to 1-1 since his stint on TUF 16. Baczynski dropped his UFC 162 fight to Brian Melancon by way of a brutal knockout.
The promotion also confirmed a previously discussed bout between Dagestan’s Rustam Khabilov and Jorge Masvidal.
Headlining UFC Fight for the Troops 3 will be a middleweight matchup between Lyoto Machida and United States Army Special Forces sniper Tim Kennedy. The fight card will air live on November 6 via FOX Sports 1, with the preliminary card likely landing on Facebook.
