On Saturday, the UFC will return to the Sunshine State with the compelling UFC Fort Lauderdale card, scheduled to air on ESPN+, ESPN, and ESPN 2.
In the main event of this exciting card, top middleweight contender Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will battle short-notice replacement opponent Jack Hermansson in a bout loaded with very different implications for both men.
Elsewhere on the card, we’ll witness the returns of welterweight action fighters “Platinum” Mike Perry and Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira, who will collide in a bout that seems like a frontrunner for the evening’s Fight of the Night honors.
The card will also include appearances from established contenders, rising prospects, veterans and former champions like John Lineker, Cory Sandhagen, Glover Teixeira, Ion Cutelaba, Andrei Arlovski, Carla Esparza, Gilbert Burns, and Jim Miller.
