The fallout from the cancellation of UFC 176 continues, as a lightweight bout between Gray Maynard and Fabricio Camoes has been moved to UFC Fight Night 47.
The card will be hosted by the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine, on August 16th.
Maynard (11-3-1) will be looking to rebound from back-to-back, stoppage losses to Nate Diaz and TJ Grant. Prior to the defeats the powerful wrestler scored a split decision win over Clay Guida in June, 2012.
Camoes (14-8-1) is also coming off consecutive losses, as “Morango” was tapped out by Jim Miller in his last outing, after being decisioned by Melvin Guillard. Before the defeats Camoes had won three straight fights.
In addition, the UFC has announced that welterweight newcomer Matt Dwyer has withdraw from his August 23rd bout with Alex Garcia. Neil Magny has agreed to step in and face Garcai at UFC FN 49, which will be hosted by Tulsa, Oklahoma.
No specific reason for Dwyer’s withdrawal was given.
