Jacare Souza has been named as Yoel Romero’s next opponent, headlining UFC Florida, instead of the original rumoured opponent Paulo Costa.
Paulo Costa was the name to fight Yoel Romero next, but it seems the UFC have decided to book a rematch between ‘The Soldier of God’ and Jacare Souza instead to headline their Florida card at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.
Yoel Romero will be looking to solidify himself as one of the top contenders in the Middleweight division. Romero is 1-2 in his last 3 having lost two decisions to current champion Robert Whittaker and defeating Luke Rockhold in between. Jacare, on the otherhand, will be hopeful to venture further up the rankings as he chases a long desired title shot. Jacare is coming of a KO win against Chris Weidman, losing via split decision to Kelvin Gastelum prior to this.
Who do you see winning this rematch? Are you devastated or relieved Costa has been spared?
