UFC middleweights are set to clash at UFC 249, as No. 10 ranked Uriah Hall will face long time top contender Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza on April 18 in Brooklyn.
In September, “Jacare” tested the waters at light heavyweight in a main event showdown with Jan Blachowicz at UFC Sao Paolo and while he didn’t leave Brazil with the result he wanted, there is no doubt that Souza is one of the best fighters in the world at 185lbs.
He will look to prove that once again against Hall, who has put together back-to-back wins against Bevon Lewis and No. 14 Antonio Carlos Junior.
UFC 249 will be headlined with the highly-anticipated showdown between unbeaten lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson.
