Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes added to UFC 168

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Former lightweight contender Jim Miller faces Brazil's Fabricio Camoes at UFC 168 in Las Vegas.

The UFC is slowly filling up its lineup for the traditional year-end PPV in Las Vegas, Nevada. Per a report from Fox Sports' Damon Martin (later re-tweeted by Lightweights Jim Miller and Fabricio Camoes are set to battle on the preliminary card of UFC 168 on December 28th:

Miller (22-4, 1 NC) once rode a winning streak of 7 fights from 2009 to 2011, and was on the way to becoming a possible candidate for a title shot. In the last two years, Miller has won just 2 of 5 fights, with lopsided losses to Ben Henderson and Nate Diaz plus a technical submission setback against Pat Healy. The Healy loss was flipped to a no-contest after Healy's failed drug test, but it doesn't erase the fact that he was choked unconscious in the 3rd round.

Camoes (14-7-1) failed to win his first two UFC fights and was eventually released, but wins over former UFC fighters Steve Lopez and Efrain Escudero prompted a return to the Octagon. On the third attempt, the BJJ black belt finally recorded a UFC win with a submission of Tommy Hayden in January 2012, but found himself on the losing end yet again after dropping a decision to Melvin Guillard. This would be Camoes' first fight in almost 18 months, and it's once again versus a former top 10 lightweight.

UFC 168 features two title fights - A middleweight rematch between champion Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva, and a women's bantamweight rematch between champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.
