A middleweight bout between top contenders Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Yoel Romero has been added to the stacked UFC 184: Weidman vs. Belfort lineup, February 28th in Los Angeles. The UFC confirmed the booking this morning.
It’s a match with high stakes, as it could theoretically produce a new title contender at 185-pounds. Jacare is currently listed as the #3 middleweight contender in the promotion’s rankings, and is a perfect 4-0 in the UFC with stoppage wins against Chris Camozzi, Yushin Okami, and Gegard Mousasi. Romero is ranked #6 and is 5-0 in the UFC, with four of those wins coming via KO/TKO. The “Soldier of God” most recently picked up a very controversial win against Tim Kennedy (#stoolgate), but nevertheless, this is a dangerous dude who can swing the hammers.
As it stands, UFC 184 will feature two title fights, a win-or-GTFO match in the heavyweight division, and now a potential #1 contender bout at middleweight. Meanwhile, this Saturday’s UFC 180 card in Mexico City is 59% non-wiki, but that’s none of my business.Read More DIGG THIS
