Rafael Natal and Tim Kennedy Square Off In Main Event

Published on November 5th, 2013 2:48 pm EST

It's easy to forget that there is a free UFC card taking place tomorrow night - UFC: Fight for the Troops 3.

After all, there is also an event this Saturday (UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs Henderson), and a REALLY big event next Saturday (UFC 167: St. Pierre vs Hendricks).


The original main event of the UFC: Fight for the Troops 3 card was originally supposed to feature Lyoto Machida vs Tim Kennedy in Machida's Middleweight debut. However, after an injury to Michael Bisping, Machida was given the Mark Munoz fight (which he won), and Tim Kennedy was given Rafael Natal as a new opponent.

Now, UFC: Fight for the Troops 3 doesn't contain a great number of names that casual MMA fans will know, but there are a number of fighters on the card who are currently enjoying winning streaks. In short, there are plenty of intriguing fights on the card, regardless of the fact that there aren't any big names.


Here is the main card:

Tim Kennedy vs Rafael Natal
Liz Carmouche vs Alexis Davis
Ronny Markes vs Yoel Romero
