UFC 158 Receives Chris Camozzi-Nick Ring; UFC On Fuel TV 8 Lands Two Bouts

UFC officials have kicked it into overdrive to start 2013, announcing several bouts for first quarter events.

UFC 158, which takes place March 16 from Montreal, has received a middleweight contest between Chris Camozzi and Nick Ring.

Both fighters have put together strong runs inside the Octagon, with Camozzi (18-5) going 5-2, including three consecutive victories.

Ring, meanwhile, is 13-1 and coming off a victory over Court McGee. His lone career loss came at the hands of Tim Boetsch.

As expected, the UFC’s return to Japan for UFC on Fuel TV 8 on March 3 will have an Asian feel to it.

Mizuto Hirota will make his debut after a run in Strikeforce, dropping to featherweight and taking on Rani Yahya. Hirota (14-5-1) is a former World Victory Road and DEEP lightweight champion who has gone 4-2 in his last six, falling to ranked fighters Pat Healy and Shinya Aoki.

Yahya sports a 17-7 record, including a 2-1 mark inside the Octagon.

Also, Marcelo Guimaraes (8-0-1) has signed to face Hyun Gyu Lim (10-3-1). The bout marks the debut in the UFC for Lim, while Guimaraes is 1-0 in his Octagon career.
