UFC 168: Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes booked for Dec. 28 in Las Vegas

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card of the year just got bigger as UFC 168 -- which is set to take place on Dec. 28, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, NV -- now adds Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes to the docket.

A lightweight match-up featuring Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes has been etched in stone for UFC 168, which is set to take place on Dec. 28, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada. And as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White aptly put it, the final card of 2013 will be bigger than megalithic UFC 100.

UFC officials announced the 155-pound bout late Wednesday evening.

Camoes (14-7-1) is smack dab in the middle of his second stint with UFC. After suffering a loss at the hands of Kurt Pellegrino and a draw against Caol Uno during his first two trips to the Octagon, "Morango" messed around and grabbed a couple victories outside the friendly confines of ZUFFA, thus earning himself the right to return and has since broke even at 1-1.

After winning in his encore bout with UFC, the Brazilian fighter enters the contest against Miller fresh off a unanimous decision loss to the resurgent Melvin Guillard.

That brings us to the widely-beloved Miller (22-4, 1 NC), who was once on the verge of a earning a UFC title shot following memorable fights against virtually everyone in the lightweight division.

He enters this scrap coming off a no-contest result, after his loss to Pat Healy was overturned when "Bam Bam" tested positive for weed following their "Garden State" grapple-fest. Miller holds notable wins over the aforementioned Guillard and Joe Lauzon, among others.

Should be fireworks.

UFC 168 features a highly-anticipated rematch between middleweight champion Chris Weidman and former titleholder Anderson Silva, while the co-main event showcases current coaches of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 18 as women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey defends her title against arch rival Miesha Tate.
