UFC 158: Nick Ring Vs. Chris Camozzi

Nick Ring vs. Chris Camozzi

The final non-welterweight bout is up next, as Nick Ring (13-1) takes on Chris Camozzi (18-5). Camozzi is on a three-fight win streak. The referee in charge will be Marc-Andre Cote.

Round 1: A pair of lefties in this one, which, as a fellow southpaw, always excites me. Ring throws a kick and ends up catching Camozzi with a slap to the face. Ring pushing the tempo and throwing a lot of swooping lefts and rights. Huge uppercut misses from Camozzi. Ring doing a nice job of mixing up his levels with strikes and kicks, while Camozzi continues to throw bombs. Big left lands to the head of Ring, who goes for a takedown but quickly lets go of it. Ring doing a nice job in the final minute, and he could be stealing the round on the scorecards with this finish.

Round 2: Both fighters have some minor cuts and bruises on their faces, as neither are doing much blocking are just eating the punches and kicks. Camozzi catches Ring and has him rocked, throwing a huge flying knee at him. Stiff right connects from Camozzi, as Joe Rogan believes Ring is trying to take him to the third round and tire him out.

Round 3: Ring with a bit of fire in his attack, throwing kicks to the lead leg and peppering Camozzi with strikes to start the round. Camozzi lands a combo and follows it up with a stiff right jab off the forehead. Big left connects from Camozzi who I just noticed is sponsored by Pretty interesting. Ring avoids the takedown attempt, but eats a series of rights. Overhand left from Camozzi, as Ring appears to have hit a bit of a wall. A minute left in this one, and it’s Camozzi who looks fresher, throwing a combination that Ring can do nothing but take.
