A lightweight bout has been added to UFC 168 on December 28th as Jim Miller will meet Fabricio Camoes.
UFC officials announced the fight booking early this morning and the bout will likely be placed on the preliminary card on Fox Sports 1.
UFC 168 will come from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 28th and will be headlined by a rematch as Chris Weidman defends the UFC middleweight title against former champion Anderson Silva.
Miller (22-4, 1NC) has gone 2-2, 1NC in his last five fights after being on a seven fight win streak from middle of 2009 to the beginning of 2011. His most recent bout came at UFC 159 in April as he was originally defeated by Pat Healy. However, the bout was changed to a no contest when Healy tested positive for a banned substance.
Camoes (14-7-1) is currently in his second stint in the UFC and has gone 1-1 since returning to the promotion. This will be his first fight since last summer, which was a unanimous decision defeat against Melvin Guillard at UFC 148.
