UFC Ronaldo Jacare Souza

In Totally Slid Under the Radar news, Saturday’s UFC on FOX 15 has a new co-main event. It was quietly announced during this past weekend’s UFC event in Poland that Yoel Romero has suffered an injury that will force him out of this weekend’s shootout against Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (pictured).

The UFC has brought back Chris Camozzi to rematch Souza in the card’s co-featured attraction.

Camozzi was cut in September after dropping a split decision to Rafael Natal. The defeat marked his fourth consecutive under the UFC’s watch. Camozzi rebounded nicely in his lone appearance away from the octagon by submitting Jeremy Kimball in November.

Souza, currently ranked first in the division, will be riding a seven-fight winning streak into the tango. He most recently submitted Gegard Mousasi in September.

Souza submitted Cammozzi in the first round in their initial encounter back in May 2013.

Here is UFC on FOX 15’s revised roster:
