Camozzi, Carmont clash in October
The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed the match up earlier today.
Camozzi, a cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter Season 11,” came off of the show with a pair of wins inside the Octagon, including a unanimous decision over James Hammortree at the season’s finale event and Dongi Yang at UFC 121. A one-sided submission loss to Kyle Noke at UFC 127 led the promotion to release the middleweight from their roster.
Since his release, Camozzi has fought only once, earning a split-decision over Joey Villasenor under the Shark Fights banner.
His opponent, a UFC newcomer, is 16-7 as a professional, but has had a great deal of success as of late. In his most recent contest, which occurred this past June, he defeated Jason Day via technical knockout, paving his way onto the UFC roster.
UFC 137 is set for October 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada and features a welterweight title bout between champion Georges St. Pierre and challenger Carlos Condit. The event will broadcast live on pay-per-view.
