‘Jacare’ Would Fight For 205 Title But Expects Yoel Romero

“I will always be ready to become the champion. I work for the UFC, and some fighters like to do the matchmaker’s job. I’m a fighter. If the UFC sets a date with any opponent at 185 or 205 pounds, I will be ready to become the champion.”

“There’s no other opponent that makes sense except for Romero, so that’s a fight that might happen. I’m just waiting for the UFC to announce it.”

UFC middleweight ‘Jacare’ Souza recently told MMAFighting that he would be willing to fight for the title at both middleweight and light heavyweight, if the UFC asked him to. He also said that he thinks Yoel Romero will be his next fight, considering the two were supposed to fight before, but Romero had to pull out.
