Fabricio Camoes to Make UFC Debut at UFC 106 vs. Caol Uno

Fabricio "Morango" Camoes will make his Octagon debut against Caol Uno at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, according to Uno during a UFC press conference held Tuesday in Japan.

Sherdog's Tony Loiseleur was first to report the matchup along with the probable matchup between Wanderlei Silva and Yoshihiro Akiyama some time in early 2010.

Camoes (10-4) lives in San Diego, Calif. by way of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt who notably trains with Diego Sanchez under Saulo Ribeiro. Camoes first made an impression on Oct. 7, 2006 when he defeated three opponents in one night, including veterans Luciano Azevedo and Jean Silva, to win the Super Challenge tournament in Brazil. He's fought three times in recent years for Strikeforce and EliteXC, defeating Joe Camacho, Sam Morgan and Torrance Taylor.

Uno (25-12-4), a former UFC lightweight title challenger, returned to the Octagon in June but lost a close unanimous decision to Spencer Fisher.
