Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (pictured) vs. Yoel Romero: Take Two. After a case of pneumonia forced Souza out of their UFC 184 meeting, the middleweight affair will now co-headline UFC on FOX 15.
The UFC announced the re-booking Wednesday via Twitter.
The April 18 event takes place inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Souza, currently ranked third in the division, will be riding a seven-fight winning streak into the tango. He most recently submitted Gegard Mousasi in September.
Romero is perfect through his first five UFC outings. “Soldier of God” has finished four of those victims via some form of knockout.
FOX will broadcast the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Here is the show’s revised lineup:
Kenny Robertson vs. George Sullivan
Nick Catone vs. Vitor Miranda
Corey Anderson vs. Gian Villante
Felice Herrig vs. Paige VanZant
Jim Miller vs. Paul Felder
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Yoel Romero
Luke Rockhold vs. Lyoto Machida
