UFC on FX 8: Chris Camozzi vs. Cezar Ferreira booked for May 18 with CB Dollaway hurt

USA TODAY Sports

Goodbye "Doberman," hello "Kamikaze."

Looks like "The Doberman" was bitten by the injury bug.

The upcoming UFC on FX 8: "Belfort vs. Rockhold" event, booked for Sat., May 18, 2013 at Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil, will go into the shop for repairs now that C.B. Dollaway has been hurt and forced to withdraw from his match-up against Cezar Ferreira.

Calling Chris Camozzi ... come in Chris Camozzi ...

Camozzi (19-5) took a decision win over Nick Ring at the UFC 158: "St. Pierre vs. Diaz" pay-per-view event just last month. The victory was his fourth straight, having previously outpointed Luiz Cane in addition to putting away Dustin Jacoby and Nick Catone.

Short notice vs. long layoff.

Ferreira (5-2) hasn't seen the inside of the Octagon since winning the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil by decisioning Sergio Moraes -- but that was way back at UFC 147 in June of 2012 and "Mutante" has been dormant ever since.

Will cage rust be a factor?

UFC on FX 8 features a middleweight fight between Vitor Belfort and former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion, Luke Rockhold, in the main event. Constantinos Philippou and Ronaldo Souza have also agreed to tangle atop the international card.
