TUF 11 Alumni Chris Camozzi and Kyle Noke Set for UFC 127 Scrap

Given different circumstances, Chris Camozzi and Kyle Noke could have fought each other on season 11 of the Ultimate Fighter. The men were castmastes for the show until Camozzi was forced out after it was discovered he suffered a broken jaw during his prelim win to get into the house.

Instead, the middleweights will square off at UFC 127 in Australia.

Camozzi broke the news on his Facebook page.

Both men have won each of their first two forays into the UFC octagon since being on TUF.

Noke (18-4-1) defeated Josh Bryant via TKO and then beat Rob Kimmons by rear naked choke just a few weeks ago at UFC 122. Meanwhile, Camozzi (14-3) earned decision victories over James Hammortree and Dong Yi Yang.

UFC 127 takes place on Feb. 27 in Syndey (Feb. 26 in the US), and will be anchored by a main event pitting BJ Penn against Jon Fitch. Other likely bouts include Georges Sotiropoulos vs. Dennis Siver and Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera.

The 30-year-old Noke should be a fan favorite; he hails from New South Wales, Australia.
