While accompany his friend and training partner, Georges St. Pierre to Las Vegas yesterday for the now infamous UFC 137 press conference, French fighter, Francis Carmont, managed to also get himself a UFC contract and a fight on the same card as St. Pierre. Carmont's trainer, Eric Keefe, who works under Firas Zahabi at Tristar Vale Tudo in Montreal, revealed the news to Sherdog:

According to trainer Eric O’Keefe, Carmont was in Las Vegas Wednesday with Tristar Gym teammate Georges St. Pierre for the promotion’s UFC 137 press conference, and the 16-7 fighter signed the dotted line before returning to the Montreal area on a redeye.

No opponent has yet been named, but O’Keefe says that he expects an opponent to be offered in the coming days.

The card is full, except for Penn's new opponent. Interesting.

I hope this isn't the "deal Penn couldn't refuse". Gonna need a little more name recognition for me. But if Dana offered B.J. mega $, then I could see why he couldn't refuse

Interesting as this guy is dropping down to MW for the first time, I believe it said, after fighting at LHW.
