UFC officials announced the fight booking on late Thursday evening.

UFC Fight for the Troops 3 will take place on November 6th from Fort Campbell, Kentucky and will be headlined by Lyoto Machida making his UFC middleweight debut against Tim Kennedy.

Romero (5-1) won his UFC debut earlier this year at UFC on FOX 7 when he defeated Clifford Starks by knockout in the first round. The bout was his middleweight debut and he won the knockout of the night bonus. Markes (14-1) has won his last eight fights with three of those coming in the UFC. He is coming off a decision win against Andrew Craig at UFC on FX 8 and all of his UFC fights have gone to the decision.

Camozzi (19-6) initially entered the UFC in 2010 and has won six of his nine fights in the organization. He recently had his four fight winning streaked snapped at UFC on FX 8 when he was defeated by Jacare Souza by technical submission. Larkin (13-1) is a former Strikeforce fighter and was defeated in his UFC debut against Francis Carmont by unanimous decision. The defeat was controversial as a majority of people felt that Larkin should have won the decision.
