An intriguing middleweight contest has been added to UFC Fight Night 36, as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza takes on Francis Carmont.
The bout serves as the co-main event for the February 15 card from Arena Jaragua in Brazil. The main event will see Lyoto Machida take on Gegard Mousasi, also at middleweight.
Souza (19-3) improved to 2-0 inside the Octagon when he stopped Yushin Okami via first round knockout. He also won in the opening round in his debut, submitting Chris Camozzi.
Carmont (22-7), meanwhile, has the chance to make a statement, as the Tristar Gym fighter is 6-0 with the promotion. That includes wins over Costa Philippou, Lorenz Larkin and Camozzi.
