Filling the new vacancy is UFC newcomer Brian Houston.
‘UFC Fight Night 31: Fight For The Troops 3’ features a main event between Lyoto Machida and Tim Kennedy. The event is set to go down on November 6 from Kentucky’s Fort Campbell.
Houston was originally slated to make his UFC debut at UFC 164 as a replacement for his now opponent, Derek Brunson. His debut was pushed out when the middleweight suffered an undisclosed injury that forced him off the card.
No word on how long Antonio Braga Neto will be on the sidelines with his ailment.
The new UFC Fight Night 31 lineup now includes:
Tim Kennedy vs. Lyoto Machida
Liz Carmouche vs. Alexis Davis
Ronny Markes vs. Yoel Romero
Rustam Khabilov vs. Jorge Masvidal
Michael Chiesa vs. Colton Smith
