This week, MMA fans will be treated to two free UFC events. The first of the two, UFC Fight for the Troops 3, is this Wednesday on Fox Sports 1. The event is headlined by Army Veteran, Tim Kennedy against Rafael Natal. Natal is stepping in on short notice to replace Lyoto Machida.

Kennedy is coming off a successful UFC debut against Roger Gracie and has won two in a row dating back to Strikeforce. Natal is currently on a three fight winning streak in the UFC and is taking a big step up in competition.

Other army veterans, including Liz Carmouche, Colton Smith, and Neil Magny will be fighting on the card as well.

Editor-in-chief, Josh Sanchez, and I look at the entire main card for the event and make our picks and predictions for Wednesday night.
