A middleweight bout pitting Chris Camozzi against Nick Ring has been added to UFC 158 in Montreal, and both fighters are out to prove something in this fight.

For Nick Ring, it’s a return to action after a disappointing close to 2012 when he fell ill just hours before his scheduled bout against Costa Philippou at UFC 154, thus cancelling the fight.

Now Ring will look to start 2013 off right and prove he belongs among the best at 185 pounds in the UFC.

Chris Camozzi has no intention of letting him prove anything, however, because he believes this is his shot to prove to the fans and the UFC that he’s ready to be showcased on pay-per-view main cards and face the top talent in the world.

“This is exactly what I have been asking the UFC for. Give me someone that has been on the main cards contending for a shot. Put the fight on a big PPV and let me prove that I can show up under pressure and preform,” Camozzi told MMAWeekly.com on Saturday.

“I predict that I will be riding a four-fight win streak after this fight and position myself as a contender in the division.”

Camozzi has won three fights in a row in the UFC recently with victories over Dustin Jacoby, Nick Catone and Luiz Cane, and now looks to make an even bigger splash in his next fight.

Facing Ring in his home country of Canada will be no easy test, but that’s exactly what Camozzi has been asking the UFC for: a chance to prove he’s a legit contender.

“I do not feel as anyone owes me anything at this point, I owe the UFC and the fans a show. I need to showcase what got me to the big stage in every fight,” said Camozzi. “Nick better be ready for a war.”
