Chico Camus welcoming 9-0 newcomer Dustin Kimura to the UFC in February

The UFC appears to be done adjusting the lineup for UFC 156, adding a fight to the preliminary portion of the card currently boasting eleven bouts. According to event officials, bantamweights Chico Camus-Dustin Kimura will collide inside the Octagon to see whose winning streak remains when the dust settles at the February 2 show.

Camus came out with his hand raised in his UFC debut this past August, outpointing Dustin Pague to extend his run of successful scraps to four in a row. He holds an overall record of 12-3 with seven stoppages to his credit.

The unbeaten Kimura (9-0) will be fighting on the sport’s grandest stage for the first time in his career come showtime. Eight of his nine wins have involved some form of finish including six by way of submission.

UFC 156 is headlined by a title-fight between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight king Frankie Edgar. Other notable match-ups include Jon Fitch-Demian Maia, Rashad Evans-Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and Alistair Overeem-Antonio Silva.
