The bout was first reported by the Los Angeles Daily News and subsequently confirmed by UFC officials.
Featuring a championship rematch between UFC featherweight title holder Jose Aldo and top contender Chad Mendes, UFC 176 takes place Aug. 2 at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Camoes fought most recently in December, when he was forced to tap to a Jim Miller armbar. That was the lone 2013 bout for “Morango,” who owns a 10-fight winning streak in bouts outside of the UFC but has earned just one victory in five octagon appearances.
Meanwhile, Maynard is perhaps best known for a pair of legendary 2011 bouts with then-UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. However, after opening his career at 10-0, “The Bully” is just 1-3-1 in his past five outings.
The night’s official bout order has yet to be revealed, but Camoes vs. Maynard will likely serve on the evening’s preliminary lineup.
