UFC Fight For The Troops 3 Adds Lightweights Yancy Medeiros, Yves Edwards

Lightweights Yancy Medeiros and Yves Edwards will square off at UFC Fight For The Troops 3, officials announced on Sunday.

The card takes place November 6 from Fort Campbell. Other bouts include Lyoto Machida-Tim Kennedy, Alexis Davis-Liz Carmouche and Colton Smith-Michael Chiesa.

Medeiros, 25 years old, will be looking to rebound from his first career loss this past April to Rustam Khabilov via TKO. He is 9-1 in his career, including two wins in Strikeforce prior to joining the UFC.

Edwards (42-20-1) is one of the most veteran fighters in the UFC, but has lost two straight and three of four. He fought on the second UFC Fight For The Troops show back in 2011, submitting Cody McKenzie.
