Gray Maynard will return to action at UFC 176. | Dave Mandel/

Gray Maynard will square off with Fabricio Camoes in a lightweight clash at UFC 176.

Promotion officials announced the pairing late Monday night. UFC 176 takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and is headlined by a featherweight title clash between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes.

After going unbeaten in his first nine promotional appearances, Maynard has won just once in his last five outings. “The Bully” last competed at “The Ultimate Fighter 18” finale, where he suffered a first-round technical knockout loss to Nate Diaz.

Camoes, meanwhile, has tasted victory just once in five UFC bouts. In his most recent fight, the Brazilian was submitted by a Jim Miller armbar in the opening frame at UFC 168.
