UFC Middleweight Chris Camozzi

On Monday afternoon, it was announced an undisclosed injury has forced CB Dollaway out of his UFC on FX 8 fight against Cezar Ferreira.

As we all know full well, the Octagon show waits for no man. Middleweight Chris Camozzi (pictured) has agreed to serve as substitute on May 18.

Camozzi collected his fourth straight win by taking a split decision victory over Nick Ring last month at UFC 158.

Ferreira won “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” by defeating Sergio Moraes in the show’s finale. This marks Ferreira’s first scrap since taking the tournament.

Jaragua Arena in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil hosts the festivities. FX broadcasts the main card live in America.

Here is the card’s revised roster:

Yuri Alcantara vs. TBD

Lucas Martins vs. Jeremy Larsen

Jussier Formiga vs. Chris Cariaso

Mike Rio vs. Francisco Trinaldo

Hacran Dias vs. Nik Lentz

Roger Hollett vs. Fabio Maldonado
