Kyle Noke vs Chris Camozzi set for UFC 127 in Australia


It's Team Liddell vs Team Punishment all over again.

Two former competitors on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 11 have been slated to square off as Kyle Noke will take on Chris Camozzi at UFC 127 on Feb. 27 from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.

The news was first reported by MMA Weekly.

It will be a homecoming for Noke, who at one point served as a bodyguard for the "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin. He's 2-0 in his young career with the UFC with both wins coming via stoppage in the second round.

He'll look to do some hunting of his own in the "Land Down Under" when he takes on Camozzi.

Though he appeared on season 11 of TUF, Camozzi was never truly given a chance as he broke his jaw in his preliminary fight with Victor O'Donnell. He's made the most of his two fights since then, taking decision victories from James Hammortree and Dong Yi Yang. 

He'll be "on the road" as he attempts to win his third straight.

UFC 127 is currently set to be headlined by B.J. Penn taking on welterweight stalwart Jon Fitch. The co-main event is currently rumored to feature a middleweight bout between two trash talkers in Michael Bisping vs Jorge Rivera.

Also featured on the card will be Chris Lytle vs Carlos Condit and George Sotiropoulos vs Dennis Siver.
