Costa Philippou-Francis Carmont Added To UFC 165

Middleweights Costa Philippou and Francis Carmont will square off this September at UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson. UFC officials announced the bout on Tuesday.

The event takes place September 21 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Placement of the bout is currently unknown.

Philippou (12-2) has won five of his six UFC fights, and was seeking a possible match with Michael Bisping for later this year.

Instead, he will settle for the unbeaten in the Octagon Carmont (21-7), who has won all five of his fights and is a training partner of UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
