UFC Vegas 37: Cameron Vancamp Steps In For Jim Miller To Fight Nikolas Motta
It’s debutant vs debutant at UFC Vegas 37 after Cameron Van Camp (15-5-1, 1 NC) agreed to step in for MMA veteran Jim Miller.
VanCamp will take on the Dana White’s Contender Series winner, Nikolas Motta (12-3).
He beat Joseph Lowry in the final via unanimous decision to win the competition last November. The Brazilian fighter is on a three-fight win streak, winning five of his last six bouts. These wins include a lightweight title fight at the Cage Fury Fighting Championships 79.
Miller — the UFC veteran who holds the record for most octagon appearances in the organization — is down with the coronavirus. He pulled out of the bout on Friday.
VanCamp then confirmed on social media that he will replace Miller.
