With Nik Lentz now assigned to Chad Mendes at UFC on FOX 9, Dennis Bermudez (pictured) didn’t go long without an opponent for UFC Fight for the Troops 3. FoxSports.com reported Tuesday Bermudez will now meet Steven Siler in the November 6 event.
Bermudez is perfect through his past four fights. “The Ultimate Fighter 14” finalist took a split decision victory over Max Holloway in his last outing.
Siler has won five of his last six bouts, including two straight. He knocked out former WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown just last month.
Fort Campbell in Kentucky will host the festivities.
