At UFC 194 last month, not only was a new middleweight champion crowned as Luke Rockhold defeated Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight championship, the #1 contender at middleweight was also determined as Yoel Romero defeated Jacare Souza.
While there’s been no word on who Luke Rockhold will face in his first title defense, Jacare is looking to get a rematch with Romero, or a fight with Chris Weidman.
His manager spoke on UFC Tonight:
“We still have not digested the judges’ decision. Romero played dirty. If you look at the footage, he held the fence twice to avoid the takedown sequence in the second round and poked Jacare’s eyes in the third.”
