Chris Camozzi signs with Prize Fighting Championship, returns to action on Nov. 21 in Colorado

"Kamikaze's" road back to the Octagon begins sooner, rather than later.

That didn't take long.

A week after revealing that he was released by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Chris Camozzi has found a new place to call his mixed martial arts (MMA) home.

Camozzi revealed on the Performance MMA blog that he inked a deal with the Denver, Colorado-based company, Prize Fighting Championship, which is run by former UFC heavyweight champion Shane Carwin, and is set to return to action on Nov. 21, 2014, in Denver, Colorado.

His words:

"The last few years I have been traveling the world and fighting. I finally get the opportunity to fight in my hometown of Denver, Colorado and it's the first time since 2010. I just signed a new bout agreement with Denver promotion, Prize Fighting Championship and I'm back in action November 21st at the National Western Complex vs Jeremy Kimball. I'm looking forward to fighting in front of my family, friends and fans who have supported me all over the world. I will have tickets for sale very soon at Performance MMA so make sure you drop in and grab some. You don't want to miss it!"

Camozzi's split-decision loss to Rafael Natal, which went down at UFC Fight Night 50 back on Sept. 5, 2014, was his fourth straight inside the Octagon against some very stiff competition, including Ronaldo Souza.

His opponent, Jeremy Kimball, holds a solid 10-4 record, and had his six-fight win streak snapped by Perry Filkins at Bellator 98 over a year ago.

The road back to the big show, begins soon.
