Even though he has no opponent at the moment, Camozzi is expected to remain on the card as UFC officials are seeking a replacement opponent to fight him.
Camozzi (7-3-0) is currently winless thus far in UFC competition, dropping a fight to Randy Brown at UFC Fight Night 102. Brian Camozzi is also the brother of fellow UFC fighter Chris Camozzi, who last competed at UFC Fight Night 109. Camozzi also fought three times in the Resurrection Fighting Alliance, defeating the trio of Tyler Milner, Kenneth Glenn and Nick Barnes.
UFC 213 takes place on Saturday, July 8 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow the event.
