Francis Carmont will put his 10-fight win streak at risk against a Top 10 middleweight in September.

Carmont (21-7 MMA, 5-0 UFC) will meet Constantinos Philippou (12-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at UFC 165 this fall. UFC officials on Tuesday announced the new matchup.

UFC 165 takes place Sept. 21 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The main card will air on pay-per-view following prelims that are expected to air on either FOX Sports 1 or FOX Sports 2 and Facebook.

Agreed, Carmont hasn't looked great in his last 2 fights and arguably lost both of them. Personally I'm just happy to see that Costa has a fight

Pretty disappointed by this fight, I was hoping for more of a contender bout for pou. Carmont beat lawlor by the skin of his teeth, he is going to get school house rocked

For me with Costa being kind of near the bottom of the top and Francis being near the top of the middle, this isn't terrible matchmaking. Francis got some lucky decisions recently I thought and Philippou is hard for me to get behind so I'm not exactly pumped up for this. The winner makes a decent move though, but not significant. I think Philippou is able to utilize enough decent sprawl and brawl and mitigating striking against Carmont to probably win a 29-28 UD.

At least UFC added a late main card bout.
Decent main card now

So long as it's not Ricci vs Jury bumping them off the main card, this'l work nicely.

Philippou via actually winning his last two fights.

But seriously, this should be all Costa.

Yeah, limitless is limited to a boring hug and hold game plan. Poo should shrug him off and bomb on his grill piece and lose a split.

I don't trust Carmont's gas tank, he get's finished in the 3rd.

2 of the most overrated fighters in the UFC in my opinion. I see Costa taking it, derailing Carmont's hype train and continuing his own

I don't think that Costa is over rated at all! I am disappointed that when he just give me a fight that this is all they could get him...where is Belcher, Munoz, or Bisping?
