A female bantamweight bout has been booked for The UFC’s Fight Night 31 event in the form of Liz Carmouche vs. Alexis Davis.

UFC officials announced the fight this afternoon via their official twitter account.

UFC Fight Night 31 or ‘Fight For The Troops 3’, is set to go down from Kentucky’s Fort Campbell on November 6th. The free televised card will air on the new Fox Sports 1. In the main event, Military sniper, Tim Kennedy, is set to take on former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, in his middleweight debut.

Davis is a highly regarded female prospect who earned her way to the UFC with successful runs under the Strikeforce and Invicta FC banners. She recently made her UFC debut with a dominant decision victory over Rosi Sexton this past June.
