Two middleweight bouts have been added to the UFC Fight For The Troops card on November 6, the UFC announced on Twitter Thursday night.

Yoel Romero (5-1) will face Ronny Markes (14-1), and Lorenz Larkin (13-1) will fight Chris Camozzi (19-6).

UFC Fight For The Troops will take place at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and the card will air live on FOX Sports 1.  Earlier in the week, the UFC announced the card’s headline fight between Tim Kennedy and Lyoto Machida, who will be making a drop to middleweight.

Yoel Romero is coming of a first-round KO over Clifford Starks in his UFC debut at UFC on FOX 7.  He will face Nova Uniao fighter, Ronny Markes, who holds a perfect 3-0 record in the UFC.

Larkin is coming off a controversial decision loss to Francis Carmont in his UFC debut at UFC on FOX 7, the first loss of his career.  He will be looking to make a statement against Chris Camozzi.  Camozzi  was riding a four-fight winning streak going into his last fight against Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, but the Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist proved too much for Camozzi as Jacare choked out Souza in the first round.  Both fighters will be looking to bounce back to the win column in this next fight.
