The Milwaukee bound, UFC 164 card in continues to fill out, and it looks as though the city’s Chico Camus will take on South Korean bantamweight Kyung Ho Kang at the August 31st event. MMA Junkie.com is reporting that sources close to the fight have confirmed that Camus will face Kang at the event, which will be hosted by the city’s Bradley Center.
Camus will be looking to rebound from a third round, submission loss he suffered versus Dustin Kimura at UFC 156 in February, which followed the Roufusport fighter’s successful Octagon debut last August, when he handed Dustin Pague a UD loss at UFC 150. Prior to facing Kimura, the 28 year-old Camus had won four straight.
Kang (11-6) made his UFC debut in March at UFC on FUEL TV 8 and lost by split decision to Alex Caceres, in what was a very entertaining and close fight. Caceres, however, tested positive for marijuana metabolites after the bout and it was declared a no contest. Kang signed with the UFC after winning three consecutive bouts under South Korea’s Road FC banner.
