Chad Laprise Steps in for Injured Alan Jouban, Meets Brian Camozzi at UFC 213

By Tristen Critchfield Jun 8, 2017

Chad Laprise will replace the injured Alan Jouban and face Brian Camozzi at UFC 213.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the new welterweight matchup on Thursday. UFC 213 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 8 and is headlined by a women’s bantamweight title bout between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko.

Jouban recently revealed that a fractured foot suffered in sparring would keep him from competing at UFC 213.

Laprise, 30, initially made his mark by winning “The Ultimate Fighter: Nations” with a split-decision triumph over Olivier Aubin-Mercier at the reality show’s finale in April 2014. The Canadian has compiled a 4-2 mark in the Octagon and is coming off a first-round stoppage of Thibault Gouti at UFC on Fox 21 last August.

Camozzi fell to 7-3 as a professional when he was fell to Randy Brown in his Octagon debut via second-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 102 on Dec. 9.
