UFC FN 36: Ronaldo Souza-Francis Carmont Set For February

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.

    This is a pretty serious fight here, Carmont is on a roll and so is Souza, I think overall Souza is a little better everywhere and takes it but Carmont goes the distance and opens up some eyes.

    I hope this fight is really good and looks like it should be cause I really think the main event is gonna suck.

    How in the world does Mousasi vs Machida suck? It may not be Melendez vs Sanchez but that is because these guys have some very serious technique and do not play rock em sock em MMA. Thats your opinion, it stinks but thats your opinion. ( Matt Hughes quout )

    Just think the styles of both fighters(Machida and Gegard) are gonna make for a very boring wait and see fight. Neither are going to be a major aggressor. I just really think it’s going to be mostly two guys walking in circles starring at each other, jab here , jab there, leg kick, leg kick, more circling and starring. Believe me I really hope I’m wrong but that’s what my gut is telling me.

    They do both have that style to tend and wait dont they. I think Mousasi has something to prove here and really takes it to Machida and shows he has very high level striking, we may see Machida do a little GNP.
