UFC on FX 8: C.B. Dollaway out, Chris Camozzi in vs. Cezar Ferreira

USA TODAY Sports

Chris Camozzi has stepped in for an injured C.B. Dollaway to face TUF Brazil winner Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira at UFC on FX 8 on May 18th.

It appears that C.B. Dollaway will not be getting the chance to pick up another win over a TUF Brazil contestant after all. The American fighter has suffered an injury and has been forced to withdraw from his UFC on FX 8 bout with Cezar Ferreira on May 18th, and has been replaced by the streaking Chris Camozzi. Brazilian outlet Tatame first reported the news.

Camozzi (19-5) was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 11and is currently on a four-fight winning streak. He defeated Nick Ring by decision at UFC 158 in his last bout. He has fought in Brazil before, defeating Luiz Cane by decision back at UFC 153. Ferreira (5-2) was the winner of the middleweight portion of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, defeating Sergio Moraes via decision at UFC 147 last June. He has not competed since then due to injuries.

The bout will take place on the main card, which is headlined by a middleweight bout between Vitor Belfory and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.
