Going into UFC Fight Night 75, Kyoji Horiguchi was looking to rebound from his submission loss to reigning flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson in their title bout back in April. Standing in his way was Chico Camus, who had an admirable performance against rising 125-pounder Henry Cejudo just two months ago.
Horiguchi chopped at Camus’ body with a kick in the early going. Horiguchi went for a takedown, but settled for an uppercut in the clinch followed by a counter right hand. Horiguchi missed a spinning back kick, allowing Camus to grab hold of the back. He kneed his opponent in the clinch before they separated. Round one ended with Horiguchi going for a flying knee to the body and a head kick attempt.
Quickly in round two, Camus got tagged in an exchange and a cut formed under his right eye. “King” was nailed with a one-two combination. Horiguchi stung Camus with an uppercut and later a jumping knee to the body.
In round three, Horiguchi caught Camus coming in with a right hand. Horiguchi continued to deliver different angles to Camus and made him miss more often than not. He had Camus wobbly with a combination as the fight came to a close.
