UFC Fight For The Troops is starting to take shape. UFC Officials have announced that Army Ranger Colton SmithÂ is set to face The Ultimate Fighter winner Michael Chiesa. Smith is looking to rebound from his first UFC loss to Robert Whittaker and Chiesa is looking to rebound from a loss as well. Chiesa dropped his first professional fight when he was submitted by Jorge Masvidal at UFC On FOX in July.
UFC Fight For The Troops, also known as UFC Fight Night 31, takes place at Fort Campbell in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. While no main event has named, many expect the main event to be Lyoto Machida Vs Tim Kennedy. This is the third time the UFC is hosting a Fight For The Troops, and the proceeds from the event will benefit injured soldiers returning from overseas.
