UFC 156 Fight Card Nears Completion with Addition of Chico Camus vs. Dustin Kimura


With the event less than a month away, the UFC 156 fight card is nearing completion with the latest addition being a bantamweight bout pitting Chico Camus against Octagon newcomer Dustin Kimura.

UFC officials announced the bout Tuesday morning.

Camus (12-3) is making his sophomore trip to the Octagon. He drew a tough fight with Dustin Pague at UFC 150 back in September, but came out on top, winning a unanimous decision.

He’s the latest in a string of top-level fighters emerging from the Roufusport gym in Wisconsin.

Camus will serve as the welcoming committee for Kamura (9-0).

The Hawaiian is not only making his first trip to the Octagon, but UFC 156 in Las Vegas also marks the first time he’s fought professionally in the continental United States. The majority of his previous bouts have taken place in Hawaii, with his most recent victory being in the Philippines.

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo puts his belt on the line in the UFC 156 main event opposite Frankie Edgar, who is making his featherweight debut at the Feb. 2 event in Las Vegas.
