Yang vs. Camozzi at UFC 121 in Anaheim, CA

source: cagepotato.com

CagePotato.com has learned that new UFC signee Dong Yi Yang, a.k.a. “The Ox”, will face Chris Camozzi at UFC 121 on October 23rd in Anaheim, CA.

Thus far, Yang has been a complete wrecking machine overseas, with an aggressive style eerily reminiscent of his Korean Top Team training partner Chan Sung Jung. He’s finished all nine of the fights on his flawless record by way of the crushing power in his heavy hands save for one submission (a triangle choke in his pro debut against Hyung Kyo Lee) and one TKO-via-exhaustion over former PRIDE fighter and standout judoka Pawel Nastula.

A former heavyweight, the Ox will make both his Octagon and middleweight debut at UFC 121 against Camozzi, who was forced off the latest edition of The Ultimate Fighter for a broken jaw sustained during his qualifier fight, a decision win over Victor O'Donnell. Camozzi returned at the TUF 11 Finale, where he beat James Hammortree by commanding decision.

seems like everyone named "dong" is a bad ass!lolseriously though, I think the camozzi kid has crazy heart...but he (and most mma fighters) need some fucking head movement.Taking bombs to the face with 4 ozers for 20-30 rds will really fuck up your brain.

 It's more that his name was being misspelled from a while back. Legally, it's Dongi.

 Thanks for the edit CP. I'm assuming everyone knows Camozzi beat Hammortree at the TUF Finale.  He's actually a really tough fighter that a few had pegged to win the show. I'm trying to locate a few more fight videos of The Ox besides the Nastula fight, which is a very poor representation of how exciting this guy is.  He's the 185 lb version of The Korean Zombie.

ttt, and correction: "Dong Yi" wants to be credited as "Dongi" from now on. Go figure.

 nice to see Camozzi get a shot at the UFC.  Shame when an injury takes you out of the TUF house. Good Luck Camozzi
