WEC and UFC veteran Will Campuzano is on his way back to the Octagon after winning his last five fights. The veteran fighter will be stepping up on just over a week’s notice to replace an injured Vaughn Lee against Sergio Pettis at UFC 167. Campuzano announced the move via twitter.
Quick update guys. I'll be fighting Sergio Pettis next week in Las Vegas on the GSP vs Hendricks under card. Thanks for the support!
