Jacare vs. Romero Set For UFC 184

Jacare Souza

The UFC’s return trip to Los Angeles continues to take shape,today, with the addition of a middleweight contest between Yoel Romero and Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza.

UFC officials announced the news just moments ago.

UFC 184 is going down from the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, and will feature a middleweight main event between Vitor Belfort and Chris Weidman. In the co-main event Ronda Rousey faces Cat Zingano.

“Jacare” Souza is on the cusp of a title shot, and instead of waiting his turn, the Brazilian has agreed to jeopardize his place, and face the very dangerous Will Romero.

Romero is a talented prospect, rising through the UFC’s middleweight ranks. He most recently took out Tim Kennedy via TKO in the third round of their bout, and is currently 5-0 inside the UFC’s Octagon.
