TORONTO -- Calgary middleweight Nick (The Promise) Ring will meet Chris Camozzi at UFC 158 in Montreal on March 16.

Ring (13-1) was due to face Constantinos Philippou at UFC 154 in the Bell Centre in November but had to pull out at the last minute after falling ill. The 33-year-old is 3-1 in the UFC after most recently defeating Court McGee.

Camozzi (18-5) has won three straight, earning a unanimous decision over Luiz Cane last time out.

The main event of UFC 158 pits welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre against Nick Diaz.

Four other welterweight bouts have also been announced: Rory (Ares) MacDonald of Montreal by way of Kelowna, B.C., versus Carlos (Natural Born Killer) Condit, Johny Hendricks versus Jake Ellenberger, Montreal's Patrick Cote versus Bobby Voelker, and Jordan (Young Gun) Mein of Lethbridge, Alta., versus Dan Miller.

Cote is making his debut at welterweight while Miller won his first outing at 170 pounds last time out.
