Chico Camus vs. Kyung Ho Kang added to UFC 164 in Milwaukee


A bantamweight bout between Chico Camus (12-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and kyung Ho Kang (11-6 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is the latest addition to UFC 164 in Milwaukee.

Chico Camus, who was born and raised in Milwaukee and trains under Duke Roufus, will be looking to rebound from his first promotional loss when he enters the cage August 31st. Camus was forced to tapout in the third round of his fight against Dustin Kimura at UFC 156 due to a rear-naked choke. Prior to the loss, Camus was riding a 4-fight win streak, which included a unanimous decision win over Duston Pague in his promotional debut at UFC 150 in Denver.

Kang debuted with the UFC in March at UFC on FUEL TV 8 in Japan opposite Alex Caceres. The end result of that bout was a close and highly disputed split-decision win for Caceres. However, Caceres tested positive for marijuana metabolites, which caused the contests result to be ruled a no-contest. The South Korean fighter had won three straight fights before signing with the UFC.

UFC 164 takes place August 31 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisoncsin. The event is headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and challenger T.J. Grant.
