Camur defeated Justin Ledet via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was an easy victory for Camur in his first official UFC fight. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, Camur took care of a subpar opponent with little issue. He is known for his power, but Camur did a nice job of stringing together combinations against an opponent in Ledet who displays poor striking defense. The UFC's light heavyweight division can use all the legitimate prospects it can find and Camur -- who won't turn 25 years of age until September -- certainly qualifies.

Camur will take on Justin Ledet in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 246 on Jan. 18, Shawn Bitter of Cageside Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Camur is a 25-year-old prospect on a five-fight winning streak, with all of those victories coming by way of TKO within the first two rounds. The Ohio native got his opportunity following an appearance on Dana White's Contender Series, where he overcame early adversity and landed a flying knee in the second round to seal the victory. Camur is also a training partner of heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, who could play a role in helping him prepare for a matchup against Ledet, who has lost his last two matchups under the UFC banner.
Caps off DWTNCS with flying knee, contract

Camur defeated Fabio Cherant via TKO (flying knee and punches) at 0:48 of Round 2 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He was the last of four fighters to be awarded a UFC contract following the event.
ANALYSIS
Both combatants showed flashes of power in the first round, but neither was able to connect with anything consequential. Camur actually appeared to be on the ropes early in the second round when Cherant landed a hard left hand, but in the ensuing scramble he landed a flying left knee that sent Cherant stumbling to the canvas. Cherant was able to survive for a bit, but he was smothered with an onslaught of punches from Camur that ultimately ended the contest. The Ohio native is a training partner of former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, and Dana White revealed after the show that Miocic had called him to lobby on Camur's behalf. Both the call and that performance did the trick, resulting in the 23-year-old punching his ticket to the UFC. He'll enter his first matchup with an undefeated professional record.
