Cane, Camozzi clash in Brazil this Oct.

A middleweight clash between Luiz Cane and Chris Camozzi has been announced for UFC 153.

UFC officials announced the news today.

The bout will be Cane’s first at the middleweight mark after struggling at light heavyweight. He was originally expected to make his 185 lb. debut against Yushin Okami at UFC 150.

The move comes about after Cane lost three of his last four contests in the 205 lb. division by knockout. He did beat Eliot Marshall at UFC 128, which was his lone victory out of the four contests.

Meanwhile, Camozzi is 2-1 since returning to the UFC. He suffered a loss in his first fight back, but has since won two straight, including a technical knockout win against Nick Catone in June.

UFC 153 takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 13. Featherweight champion Jose Aldo meets Erik Koch in the evening’s main event.
