UFC Fight Roundup: Chris Camozzi vs. Rafael Natal set for UFC Fight Night 50

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The UFC added a new middleweight bout to the UFC Fight Night 50 in at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn., on Sept. 5, as Rafael Natal takes on Chris Camozzi.

The middleweights were scheduled to meet at the UFC on FX 8 card in 2013, but the bout was changed as Camozzi replaced injured Costa Philippou against Ronaldo Souza in the co-main event.

Natal (17-6-1) looks to get back on track following losses to Tim Kennedy and Ed Heman, while Camozzi (19-8) enters the bout on a three-fight losing streak after losses to "Jacare", Lorenz Larkin and Bruno Santos.

The winner of the second season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil will return to the Octagon in September. Leonardo Santos, who won the reality show in 2013, is set to meet UFC newcomer Lukasz Sajewski in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night 51 in Brasilia, Brazil, on Sept. 13.

Santos (12-3-1) returns to action following a majority draw against fellow TUF winner in March. Prior to that bout, the Nova Uniao talent made his Octagon debut with a second-round submission over William Macario to win the TUF: Brazil 2 season.

Sajewski makes his promotional debut after racking up a perfect 13-0 record in Europe. The Polish fighter, a former Gladiator Arena lightweight champion, won the majority of his fights via submission.

Another match-up recently announced by the promotion is a lightweight clash between UFC newcomers Tiago dos Santos and Akbarh Arreola at the UFC on FOX 12 card in San Jose, Calif., on July 26.

Arreola (22-7-1) makes his Octagon debut after three submission victories, while "Trator" (18-4-1, 1 no-contest), a former Jungle Fight lightweight champion, enters the UFC in a nine-fight win streak.
