Rich Clementi Added To UFC 76

0

The following is from www.mmaweekly.com:

Ultimate Fighting Championship and “The Ultimate Fighter” veteran Rich “No Love” Clementi (25-12-1) has been added to the UFC 76 fight card on Sept. 22 in Anaheim, Calif. He is scheduled to take on Anthony Johnson in a bout that was signed on Thursday.

Clementi fought just twelve days ago on Sept. 1, submitting Kyle Gibbons in the first round. That bout took place in Las Vegas as part of the International Fight Organization/Steele Cage Promotions event at the Riviera Hotel and Casino.

Clementi last fought in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 9, where he lost a decision to Roan Carneiro.

Fighting out of Los Angeles, Anthony Johnson (4-0) was last seen at UFC Fight Night 10, knocking out Chad Reiner in just fourteen seconds.

The last minute addition of Clementi vs. Johnson brings the UFC 76 fight card at the Honda Center back up to the UFC’s standard of nine bouts.

It was believed that the UFC was going to continue with eight fights comprising the event in Anaheim after Wilson Gouveia, on Monday, had to withdraw from his scheduled light heavyweight bout with Jason Lambert.
