Loser leaves town?

It's a battle of struggling middleweights as Chris Camozzi makes a quick turnaround to face Rafael Natal at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 50 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, which takes place on Sept. 5, 2014, inside Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut.

UFC announced the pairing on Friday.

Camozzi (19-8) is fresh off a split-decision loss to Bruno Santos at the UFC 175 event earlier this month in Las Vegas. Unfortunately for the ex-Ultimate Fighter (TUF) guy, it was his third straight, having also been upended by Lorenz Larkin and Ronaldo Souza.

Four in a row and it could be Splitsville.

Natal (17-6) is also in dire need of a win. After Tim Kennedy smoked him in front of the "Troops" last November, "Sapo" came up lame in a unanimous decision loss to Ed Herman back in May. The Brazilian has been hot and cold since his Octagon debut back in 2010.

It's now or never.

UFC Fight Night 50 features the transplanted middleweight rematch between Gegard Mousasi vs. Ronaldo Souza in the main event of the evening, while Joe Lauzon is expected to make his Octagon return against Michael Chiesa in a fun lightweight scrap.
