Lightweights, Jim Miller and Fabricio Camoes, will battle in the second fight of the UFC 168 pay per view.
Jim Miller (22-4 (1), 11-3 (1) UFC) is the #10th ranked UFC Lightweight. He is currently riding a stretch where he has exchanged wins and losses. After winning seven straight, Miller has gone 2-2 and one no contest since. His last fight, against Pat Healy in April, was originally a submission loss. Healy tested positive for Marijuana metabolites in the post-fight drug test, and the bout was overturned to a no contest. Miller will look to get back on the winning track against Camoes tonight.
Fabricio Camoes (14-7-1, 1-2-1 UFC) will be taking a big step up in competition when he meets Miller tonight. Camoes last fought in July of 2012, losing to Melvin Guillard by decision at UFC 148. Now, 19 pay per views later, Camoes will look to rebound against his toughest competition to date. A win tonight would pay huge dividends for Camoes, but the task will certainly not be easy.
