Chris Camozzi

Camozzi, a Colorado native, is not new to the ring. His career includes a 20-fight tenure in the UFC. His MMA record, 27-15, is made up of eight submissions and seven wins by knockout. He's fought as a professional in six different countries during his career.

Camozzi, 36, signed with the UFC in 2010 at the age of 21. He already had 15 pro fights at the time, but he partly regrets joining the UFC "too early."

"I kind of grew up in the UFC, when you think about it," he said according to BKFC. "Looking back, I wasn't able to string together a lot of solid wins, and I attribute a lot of that to maturity."

Camozzi shares fight clips on his Instagram page for his fans.

"Dropping ???," one person wrote in the comments. Another added, "Bring That Man His Belt."

Since joining BKFC in 2022, Camozzi is 2-0. He's currently preparing to enter the ring to go against Hunt, "The Juggernaut" who's 10-1.

"I'm 17 years into my career and I can't yet say I'm a World Champion, but winning that BKFC title checks that box on a career-long goal," Camozzi said. "Winning the belt means more to me than anything. I don't want to be cheesy, but I am willing to die in there - that's how bad I want it."

BKFC 50 will have Camozzi challenging Hunt for the BKFC World Cruiserweight Championship.
