Three More Bouts Added To June’s UFC on FX 4 Show In Atlantic City


  • 0dig
Wednesday night also saw another three matches added to June’s upcoming UFC on FX 4 show as Matt ‘Deep Waters’ Riddle (6-3) faces Luis ‘Beicao’ Ramos (19-7) and Rich ‘The Raging Bull’ Attonio (10-5) takes on Rick ‘The Horror’ Story (13-5). Also confirmed for the event was a previously reported bout between Nick ‘The Jersey Devil’ Catone (9-2) and Chris ‘Kamikaze’ Kamoze.
News of the three bouts was announced by the promotion on Wednesday night at UFC.com.
Plus Matthew Riddle, who grew up one state over in Allentown, Pennsylvania, will take on Luis “Beicao” Ramos. Riddle and Ramos were originally slated to fight at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, but the fight was scratched after Riddle became sick the day of the event.
Two other Garden State natives have also landed spots on the fight card. Rich Attonito, who trains at American Top Team in Florida but was born in Elizabeth, NJ, will face Rick “The Horror” Story at 170 pounds. Plus Nick “The Jersey Devil” Catone will return to action after more than a year in a middleweight tilt with TUF veteran Chris Camozzi.
UFC on FX 4 is expected to take place on June 22, 2012 at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Riddle earned a split decision last month at UFC 143 by defeating Henry Martinez in Las Vegas erasing a two-fight losing skid. His opponent ‘Beicao’ Ramos debuted with the UFC in Rio last summer at UFC 134, losing to Erick Silva at 40-seconds of the first round to end a three fight win streak.
Story is looking for a win after losing his last two matches, losing decisions to Martin Kampmann at UFC 139 and Charlie Brenneman at UFC on Versus 4. Attonito is 1-2 in his last three, losing by second round TKO to Jake Hecht last December and defeating Daniel Roberts at UFC on Versus 4 in Attonito’s welterweight debut.
Catone hasn’t fought since UFC 128 where he won a decision over Constantinos Philippou in a 195-lbs catchweight bout, earning his second straight win. Camozzi has traded wins for losses in his last four, defeating Dustin Jacoby by submission last January at the UFC on FOX 2 show.
