After a brief hiatus from the Octagon, middleweight Chris Camozzi (Pictured) will make his return to the big leagues against Francis Carmont at “UFC 137: St-Pierre vs. Condit.”
The former “The Ultimate Fighter 11” contestant holds a 15-4 professional record and posted a 2-1 mark during his initial stint with the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion.
Camozzi took a controversial split decision victory over veteran Joey Villasenor this past May at “Shark Fights 15” in his only fight since his UFC release.
Carmont, a striker who trains alongside UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre, has long fought at light heavyweight but will make his promotional debut in the middleweight division. He owns a 16-7 pro record.
Speaking of GSP, the planet’s baddest 170-pounder defends his crown against Carlos Condit in the pay-per-view’s featured attraction.
