Francis Carmont may be a new fighter to watch out of the Tri-Star gym in Montreal. Fighting out of Tri-star by way of France, Carmont has some serious stand up with legitimate power. Chris Camozzi continues to hold a job in the UFC without really being all that impressive. 

The very first round was dictated by Camozzi whose best offense was pressing Carmont against the cage. Unfortunately, he was unable to get the fight to the ground and when clinched up he was giving up kicks that were damaging his midsection. It was a clear round for Carmont.

The second round was more of the same with Carmont peppering Camozzi from the outside while Chris tried to clinch and get the takedown. Whenever he was close to a takedown he was brutalized in the clinch. Carmont was able to get a big slam and on the way up dropped Camozzi with a massive right hand. He had Camozzi close to finished but relented and tried for a takedown. The bell sounded with Camozzi attempting a guillotine. 

The final round demonstrated how one sided the fight was. Camozzi's best offense was that he was able to land some leg kicks. Unfortunately, whenever he did so, Carmont would throw a more damaging combination. It was a dominant round for Carmont until the very end when Camozzi was close to locking in a tight kimura. It was just a case of too little too late. 

Carmont is now a name to watch in the UFC's middle weight division. Camozzi may be receiving his walking papers after an awful performance against a UFC newcomer.
