A lightweight tilt between Gray Maynard and Fabricio Camoes will now take place Aug. 16 in Bangor, Maine.

UFC officials announced the decision on Wednesday. The fight joins a handful of other bouts that were moved this week to accommodate the cancellation of UFC 176 on Aug. 2 in Los Angeles.

After going unbeaten in his first nine promotional appearances, Maynard has won just once in his last five outings. “The Bully” last competed at “The Ultimate Fighter 18” finale, where he suffered a first-round technical knockout loss to Nate Diaz.

Camoes, meanwhile, has tasted victory just once in five UFC bouts. In his most recent fight, the Brazilian was submitted by a Jim Miller armbar in the opening frame at UFC 168.

The bout will serve as support on the Fox Sports 1 broadcast of  UFC Fight Night “Bader vs. St. Preux,” which will be topped by 205-pounders Ryan Bader and Ovince St. Preux.
