Knees! Chris Camozzi finishes Joe Riggs with a flurry of clinch strikes at UFC Pittsburgh

New, 8 comments

Chris Camozzi wasted no time making a statement tonight (Sun., Feb. 21, 2016) in his FOX Sports 1 middleweight affair with mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Joe Riggs at UFC Fight Night 83 inside CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The Colorado-based fighter came into the contest fresh off of a victory over Tom Watson last August and was itching to put together a new UFC win streak at the expense of the ground-and-pound machine Riggs.

As for their fight, well, there wasn't much to it. Camozzi stunned "Diesel" with a hard right hand, which he then followed up with knee strikes in the clinch to put away the former Bellator competitor early in round one.

Camozzi, 29, improves his overall record to 23-10, while Riggs falls to 41-16-(1).
