Camacho will now take on Alan Patrick in a lightweight matchup at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on April 11, Dave Doyle of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The UFC has postponed its next three events due to government-recommended precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but Dana White is adamant that UFC 249 -- scheduled for April 18 -- will go on as planned, albeit at an unspecified location. The card in Lincoln is scheduled for a week later, so while it may no longer take place in the state of Nebraska, the UFC is scheduling it as if it will indeed take place. With respect to the fight, Camacho will be at very slight height and reach disadvantages, though he is nearly six years younger. Patrick has a major edge in offensive wrestling volume, while Camacho's takedown defense sits at 72 percent. Camacho lands more than triple the significant strikes per minute over his six-fight UFC run, but the issue is that he's more than willing to get hit in order to land on his own, absorbing 7.14 significant strikes per minute over that span.

Has a short night at UFC Singapore

Camacho lost to Beneil Dariush via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:02 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Singapore.
ANALYSIS
It appeared as if Camacho had turned a corner with his victory over Nick Hein this past June. He badly outlanded the veteran, and it looked like he had developed a new style that would help him turn his career around. Unfortunately, this fight did not follow that script. Dariush was on him from the opening bell. Camacho could only land three significant strikes before he was taken down and submitted. He is now 2-4 in the UFC and could find himself on the outside looking in soon.

Puts on best performance to date

Camacho defeated Nick Hein via TKO (punches) at 4:56 of Round 2 at at UFC Fight Night 153 in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Camacho came into this fight as an injury replacement and wasted no time putting the screws to Hein, swarming him with volume until the opponent could take no more. Camacho has always been an action fighter but seemed to be a bit more patient in this fight, searching for his strikes and doing consistent body work that really seemed to take its toll. Camacho had just one win in four UFC fights prior to this contest but may have made a statement with his most definitive victory to date. He improves to 22-7 in professional MMA overall.
Takes short-notice fight vs. Nick Hein

Camacho will replace the injured Luigi Vendramini (knee) in a matchup against Nick Hein at UFC Stockholm on June 1, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
While it's a short-notice fight on paper, Camacho will still have over three weeks to prepare for a bout he will enter with massive height and reach advantages. He also sports better wrestling numbers over a four-fight sample size, thought his striking defense can be suspect at times. Both fighters are coming off back-to-back defeats, and could be competing for the right to remain with the company.
