UFC 168: Fabricio Camoes Reflects On His First MMA Fight (Video Exclusive)

UFC 168: Fabricio Camoes Reflects On His First MMA Fight (Video Exclusive)

Fabricio Camoes is currently in his second stint with the UFC, and will return to action next month against Jim Miller at UFC 168.

Camoes (14-7-1) scored his first UFC victory last year when he defeated Tommy Hayden, but was bested by Melvin Guillard a few months later. The Brazilian hasn’t fought since that July 2012 loss to Guillard.

Rebellion Media recently talked with Camoes, who discussed his initial MMA fight – which came in 1997 as part of a tournament in Brazil.

As a 17-year-old, Camoes defeated Eliezer Ninja via first round TKO before being matched up with a man many would soon recognize as the greatest fighter on the planet: Anderson Silva.

Here what Camoes had to say about both his first win and first loss in the video below:
