Three more Brazilians have joined the lineup for UFC 153 in a pair of respective rumbles at the Rio-bound event. In one bout, heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga will look for his second straight win since re-signing with the UFC earlier this year when he faces newcomer Geronimo dos Santos, while in the other middleweights Luiz Cane-Chris Camozzi are set to clash.
TATAME was first to report the Gonzaga-Dos Santos scrap. UFC officials have confirmed Cane vs. Camozzi.
Gonzaga, a former title-contender, holds a 13-6 mark in his career including a memorable knockout of Mirko Filipovic. All of his in-ring triumphs have involved some form of finish. Dos Santos is no slouch in the stoppage department either with 29 of his 31 total victories featuring a TKO/submission. He is currently on a ten-fight winning streak.
The 12-4 Cane appeared to be the future of the light heavyweight division a few years back but has since fallen in three of his last four fights. Meanwhile, Camozzi has been relatively hot as of late, picking up a pair of consecutive wins en route to an overall record of 17-5.
