UFC 168 Fight Card Continues to Grow with Addition of Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes


Jim Miller UFC 155The UFC 168 fight card continues to fill up with Wednesday’s addition of a lightweight bout pitting Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes.

UFC officials announced the bout.

UFC 168 is already top heavy. A rematch between UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman and challenger Anderson Silva headlines the card, while UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey puts her belt on the line in a rematch with fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Miesha Tate.t

Miller (22-4, 1 no contest) was once on the cusp of a UFC title shot, but has been on a roller coaster ride of results over the past couple of years.

Alternating between wins and losses, Miller has unfortunately suffered defeat in the bouts that would have launched him into a championship fight. He enters this bout coming off of a no-contest result after his loss to Pat Healy was changed when Healy tested positive for marijuana following the fight.

Camoes (14-7-1) is in the midst of his second run in the UFC. After going 0-1-1 on his first attempt at fighting in the Octagon, the Brazilian fighter went out and scored a couple of victories, returned, and has since gone 1-1.

After defeating Tommy Hayden in his return trip to the UFC, Camoes enters the bout with Miller coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Melvin Guillard.
