Another rematch is in the works, as Chris Camozzi has agreed to step in on a weeks notice and fight Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza next Saturday night at UFC on FOX 15.

An injury knocked Yoel Romero out of the middleweight contest. The bout had been rescheduled from earlier this year due to Souza getting sick.

The main card airs live on FOX from Newark, New Jersey, as top 185-pound contenders Luke Rockhold and Lyoto Machida collide in the main event.

Camozzi was released from the UFC last year after a pair of split decision losses, but has rebounded with two straight finishes. In 2013, he lost to Souza via technical submission after stepping in on short notice and replacing Costas Philippou.

Below is the updated lineup:
