Francis Carmont Calls Out Mark Munoz Or Yushin Okami For UFC 158

Francis Carmont, who is currently riding a nine-fight win streak that includes four consecutive wins inside the Octagon, is shooting for a top contender in his next bout at middleweight.

Carmont took to Twitter recently to make his pitch for a fight at UFC 158 in March. Teammate Georges St-Pierre will be defending his title at the event against Nick Diaz, and the French fighter is hoping to be part of it, as well.

Munoz or Okami would be a major leap in terms of the 185-pound rankings for Carmont, who has defeated Tom Lawlor, Karlos Vemola, Magnus Cedenblad and Chris Camozzi since joining the UFC. Of his 20 victories, 10 have come by way of submission, including wins over Vemola and Cedenblad last year.

Munoz is currently rehabbing from an injury that kept him sidelined for the majority of 2012, while Okami defeated Alan Belcher this past December.
