The UFC’s return to Australia next month continues to build with the addition of a lightweight fight.
Australia’s Damien Brown (17-10 MMA, 2-2 UFC) will take on Frank Camacho (20-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 121. Camacho announced the fight on a recent video blog after an initial report from mma-today.com. UFC officials have not yet made a formal announcement of the booking.
UFC Fight Night 121 takes place Nov. 19 (but airs Nov. 18 in the U.S. due to the time difference) at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. The card will air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
Brown will fight in front of his home fans once again. This will mark the third time in five fights that Brown will fight in his native Australia, and a fourth has been in nearby New Zealand. He’ll be trying to get back on track after a knockout loss to Vinc Pichel at UFC Fight Night 110, which snapped a two-fight winning streak.
Camacho made his promotional debut in June at UFC Fight Night 111 in Singapore, but had his two-fight winning streak snapped with a unanimous decision loss to Jingliang Li. Prior to that setback, he had won five of six fights.
