Light Heavyweight Match for Karlos Vemola on UFC 122 Germany
Karlos Vemola is stepping down from heavyweight to light heavyweight and is expected to fight Seth Putzerelli.
The UFC 122 in Oberhausen, Germany surely showcase the talents of Europeans. Multiple sources said that Karlos “The Terminator” Vemola (7-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is moving from heavyweight to light heavyweight and is expected to meet Seth Petruzelli (12-5 MMA, 0-3 UFC).
The UFC 122 event will take place on Nov. 13 at Oberhausen’s Konig Pilsener Arena and will air via Spike TV.
Vemola from Czech Republic is now residing in London. He first entered the cage during UFC 116. But he had no luck in his opponent John Madsen. The latter took the unanimous victory in the end.
Petruzelli had returned in the cage after a 3-year absence and met Ricardo Romero in UFC 116. Like Vemola, he didn’t go home with the victory instead, the spotlight turned into the new comer’s spot.
“I guess I just punched myself out,” Petruzelli told MMAjunkie.com after the fight. “I just got lazy on the bottom for 10 seconds and got caught. I could have got out of that submission. I was just tired.”
Petruzelli went 0-2 following a stint on “The Ultimate Fighter 2″ and was immediately released from the promotion. He bagged up four wins in his time away, which includes 2008’s most talked about performances when he knocked out Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson in 14 seconds at “EliteXC: Heat.”View Article Source »
