Change For UFC Fight Night 31, As Brian Houston Replaces Antonio Braga Neto

UFC officials have made a change to the November UFC Fight For The Troops 3 card, as Antonio Braga Neto is no longer scheduled to fight.

Neto suffered an injury in training and will not make his planned encounter with Derek Brunson. Instead, Brunson will welcome Brian Houston to the Octagon.

Set for November 9, the card will take place from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Other scheduled bouts include Lyoto Machida-Tim Kennedy, Colton Smith-Michael Chiesa and Liz Carmouche-Alexis Davis.

Houston (4-0) has won three of his four fights via knockout. He was expected to compete in the UFC this past August, but an injury knocked him out.

Brunson (10-2) was successful in his first Octagon fight, defeating veteran Chris Leben.
