Canadian prospect, Francis Carmont, is set to welcome back TUF alumni Chris Camozzi at UFC 137.
UFC officials confirmed the addition to the card this afternoon.
“UFC 137: St. Pierre vs. Diaz” is set to take place on October 29th from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The pay-per-view event will feature a welterweight championship bout in the evening’s main event between George St Pierre and Carlos Condit.
Carmont is a training partner for welterweight champion Georges St Pierre and a Tri-Star gym product. Having spent the majority of his career at 205 pounds he is now set to debut for the UFC in the 185 pound division. He most recently stopped UFC vet Jason Day in a regional match.
Camozzi is an Ultimate Fighter season 11 veteran. After two UFC victories he hit a road block this past February when he faced off and lost against Kyle Noke at UFC 127. He was released by the promotion and bounced back with a win over Team Jackson fighter, Joey Villasenor at Shark Fights 15 to earn his shot back on the big show next month.
