A lightweight pairing between Jim Miller and Fabricio Camoes will take place at UFC 168, promotion officials recently announced.
The 155-pound duel joins a year-end card topped by a middleweight title confrontation pitting reigning champion Chris Weidman against former longtime divisional kingpin Anderson Silva. The Dec. 28 pay-per-view event takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will also see Ronda Rousey defend her women’s bantamweight title against former adversary and “TUF 18” rival Miesha Tate.
Miller, 30, last competed in April, when he was submitted by Pat Healy at UFC 159. However, Healy later saw his victory changed to a no-contest after testing positive for marijuana metabolites after the fight. Miller owns an Octagon record of 11-3, with his only UFC losses coming to Nate Diaz, Gray Maynard and former lightweight champion Benson Henderson.
Camoes, meanwhile, was outpointed by Melvin Guillard in his most recent outing this past July. After posting a 0-1-1 Octagon record in his first run with the organization, Camoes returned to the promotion last year, scoring his inaugural UFC victory in a first-round submission of Tommy Hayden.
