Chris Camozzi returns to the UFC Octagon to meet newcomer Francis “Limitless” Carmont at October's UFC 137 event.
Following his release from the promotion after a submission loss to Kyle Noke at the UFC 127 event last February, American MMA fighter – Chris Camozzi – will be having another chance to return in the Octagon. UFC officials announced that he is set to meet the promotion’s newcomer, Francis Carmont, on the upcoming UFC 137 — which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on October 29.
Chris Camozzi (15-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will be making his comeback in the UFC after attaining a controversial split decision victory over Joey Villasenor at the Shark Fights 15 event. The said match-up was initially ordered as draw, but was eventually overturned and counted as a win when the New Mexico Athletic Commission revealed that one of the judges’ scores was added incorrectly.
On the other hand, Francis Carmont (16-7 MMA, 0-0 UFC) – who just signed his multi-fight deal with the UFC – currently holds a record of five consecutive victories. He is a teammate of UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald, and John Makdessi at Tristar, and has been known for attaining victories through submissions and TKOs.
