UFC 175: Trevor Smith in for Bruno Santos, Will Face Chris Camozzi
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC 175 has received a change, as the promotion has announced that Bruno Santos has withdrawn from the July 5th bout due to injury. As a result, Trevor Smith has agreed to step in and fight middleweight Chris Camozzi.
The specific nature of Santos’ injury was not provided in the announcement.
Smith (11-5) will be looking to get back on track after he was stopped by Thales Leites at UFC Fight Night 39 in April. Prior to the loss, Smith worked his way to a split decision win over Brian Houston.
Camozzi (19-7) is coming off consecutive defeats to “Jacare” Souza and Lorenz Larkin, after winning four straight bouts.
UFC 175 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will feature middleweight champ Chris Weidman taking on Lyoto Machida.
