Will Campuzano replaces injured Akitoshi Tamura at WEC 43


Texas product Will Campuzano replaces injured Akitoshi Tamura at WEC 43

One man's misfortune is another man's gain; look to WEC newcomer Will Campuzano as proof.

Campuzano (6-0 MMA, 0-0 WEC), a Dallas-based bantamweight, makes his WEC debut as a replacement for injured Akitoshi Tamura (14-7-2 MMA, 1-1 WEC) and meets Damacio Page (11-4 MMA, 2-1 WEC) next month at WEC 43 in Texas.

The move was first reported by Ariel Helwani of Versus.com, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed the change with a source close to the organization.

Luckily for the undefeated Campuzano, who's been on the WEC's radar for much of 2009, his fight with Page remains on WEC 43's Versus-televised main card.

WEC 43 takes place Oct. 10 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The nature of Tamura's injury was not immediately known.

The hard-hitting Campuzano turned pro in July 2008 and has posted six straight victories (all via stoppage) with a variety of organizations. He most recently stopped veteran Tim Snyder (8-2-1 at the time) with a first-round TKO at a May Urban Rumble Championships event.

Page, meanwhile, goes for his fourth win in five fights and his third win in four WEC bouts. Page trotted the globe during his four-year pro career before signing with the WEC in 2008. He recently rebounded from a TKO loss to now-champion Brian Bowles at WEC 35 with a vicious 18-second knockout of Marcos Galvao at WEC 39.
