Swedish website MMAnytt.se broke the news first, and Rafaello Trator’s replacement at UFC on FX 1 against promotional first-timer Reza Madadi will be Jiu-Jitsu black belt Fabricio “Morango” Camões (Gracie Humaitá).
A Royler Gracie and Vini Aieta student, Morango fought under the UFC banner on two occasions, drawing one and losing the other. Camões, husband to multiple-time Jiu-Jitsu world champion Letícia Ribeiro, left the UFC in March of 2010 after tapping out to Kurt Pellegrino, and since then he has won two fights at Tachi Palace—the latest of which came over TUF winner Efrain Escudero.
Although returning to prominence now, Morango has been around the block in MMA, as you can see below in the 1997 fight between Morango and Anderson Silva at an event in the city of Campo Grande, Brazil.
UFC on FX 1 will take place January 20 in Nashville, Tennessee, with Melvin Guillard versus Jim Miller as the main event. Also on the main card, Brazil’s Vagner Rocha squares off with the hard-nosed Mike Brown. Check out the full card:
