The UFC has confirmed two two changes to the UFC 166 card. As reported on Fighters.com, Sarah Kaufman and newcomer Jessica Eye have been officially added to UFC 166. However, a fight between George Roop and Fransico Rivera was announced for UFC 166, but the UFC has announced that the bout will be moved to the UFC Fight for the troops card.
UFC 166: Velasquez Vs Dos Santos III takes place on October 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main event will be the trilogy fight between current Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez and Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos.
UFC Fight For The Troops, also known as UFC Fight Night 31, takes place on November 6 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.
