'Jacare'-Romero set for UFC 194

Event News

The two middleweight contenders will clash at UFC 194 on December 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Another blockbuster match up has been added to the highly anticipated UFC 194 card, as Olympic silver medalist Yoel Romero takes on former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo 'Jacare' Souza in a bout that could determine who will be the next challenger for the UFC middleweight championship.

The two were originally scheduled to fight at UFC 184 in February, however Souza was force to pull out due to suffering from a case of pnuemonia. The fight was then rebooked for UFC on Fox 15 in April but Romero suffered from a torn ligament and meniscus tear in his knee. Could it be third time lucky for Jacare and the 'Soldier of God'?

Also on the card, the grudge match between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and interim champ Conor McGregor finally takes places and Chris Weidman faces former Strikeforce middleweight king Luke Rockhold for the middleweight title.
