Jim Miller looks to get back on track versus BJJ black belt Fabricio Camoes in UFC 168

The latest addition to the loaded year-end event of the UFC is a lightweight bout between Jim Miller and Fabricio Camoes. The event takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 28 and will feature the most anticipated rematch of Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.

Both lightweight veterans are looking to return in the winning column. Jim Miller was once included in the mix of the best lightweights in the UFC. He is riding in a 7 fight winning streak before losing to Benson Henderson in August of 2011. He is 2 – 2 with 1 NC after that loss. Miller was submitted by Pat Healy in his latest fight but the decision was later overturned into a No Contest after Healy tested positive in marijuana. That fight earned Miller his 3rd Fight of the Night Award; it is his 2nd consecutive after his unanimous decision win over Joe Lauzon. He has also won the Submission of the Night three times.
