A bout between lightweights Yves Edwards and Yancy Medeiros has been set for UFC Fight Night 31: Fight for the Troops 3.
Edwards is 16 year veteran of the sport, having fought in organizations including the UFC, PRIDE, WEC, Strikeforce, Bellator and EliteXC over his 63 fights. He’ll be looking to rebound after back to back split decision losses to Isaac Vallie-Flagg and Daron Cruickshank.
Medeiros meanwhile is relatively fresh in comparison. He was recruited into the UFC during the Strikeforce merger, and has since lost his debut fight in the promotion. The TKO defeat marks the Hawaiian’s first loss in his 10 fight career.
