UFC FN 36: Ronaldo Souza-Francis Carmont Set For February

An intriguing middleweight contest has been added to UFC Fight Night 36, as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza takes on Francis Carmont.

The bout serves as the co-main event for the February 15 card from Arena Jaragua in Brazil. The main event will see Lyoto Machida take on Gegard Mousasi, also at middleweight.

Souza (19-3) improved to 2-0 inside the Octagon when he stopped Yushin Okami via first round knockout. He also won in the opening round in his debut, submitting Chris Camozzi.

Carmont (22-7), meanwhile, has the chance to make a statement, as the Tristar Gym fighter is 6-0 with the promotion. That includes wins over Costa Philippou, Lorenz Larkin and Camozzi.
