After announcing the event on Wednesday, The UFC “Fight for the Troops” card is starting to fill up.

The UFC announced on Friday night two more fights that are set to take place on Nov. 6 at Fort Campbell in southern Kentucky. Colton Smith vs. Michael Chiesa and Dennis Bermudez vs. Nik Lentz are the newest additions to the card.

Smith, an active Army Ranger, will be making his lightweight debut after suffering a TKO defeat to Robert Whittaker in a welterweight fight in May at UFC 160. The 26-year-old won season 16 of “The Ultimate Fighter” as a welterweight.

Chiesa is best known for winning season 15 of “The Ultimate Fighter” and overcoming his father's death during the show. The Colorado native lost his first professional fight in June to Jorge Masvidal by submission at UFC on FOX 8.

Lentz is currently ranked in the top ten in the official UFC rankings. “The Carny” is on a three-fight win streak after making his featherweight debut last year at UFC 150.

After losing in the “The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale,” Bermudez is quietly on a four-fight win streak. The 26-year-old is coming off a split decision win over Max Holloway in May at UFC 160.

UFC “Fight for the Troops 3” is expected to be headlined by a middleweight fight between former Army Ranger Tim Kennedy and former UFC light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida. Also on the card, Rustam Khabilov will take on Jorge Masvidal and Seth Baczynski will take on Neil Magny.
