Francis Carmont, who's quietly amassed a three-fight winning streak since his debut with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) last October, will look to keep the buzz going as he faces off against Tom Lawlor at the upcoming UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for Nov. 17, 2012 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
MMA Fighting brought word of the match-up late last night.
Carmont (19-7) had people talking with his second round submission win over "The Terminator" at the UFC on FUEL TV 4 event just last month. It was the second straight finish for "Limitless," who stands at 6' 3" and somehow gets his chiseled frame down to 185 pounds a day before fight night.
But will he remain focused in the face of another wacky walkout?
Lawlor (8-4), who knows how to get a few laughs by walking out in character, also happens to be a fairly talented mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. After a rough start to his 2010 fight campaign, the "Filthy" one was able to win two of his next three, including a sensational knockout victory over Jason MacDonald back in May.
But will he step up in Montreal? Or just be stepping stone?
UFC 154 is expected to feature the long-awaited return of Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, as he attempts to unify the division titles against Interim champ Carlos Condit. In addition, Johny Hendricks will battle Martin Kampmann to see who's next in line for a crack at the crown.
