UFC 194 IS rapidly shaping up to be one of the cards of the year.

After scheduling the Chris Weidman v Luke Rockhold middleweight title bout as the co-main event to Jose Aldo v Conor McGregor, matchmakers have added another doozy.

Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza and Yoel Romero are set to finally meet in their long-awaited middleweight showdown on 12 December.

With Souza ranked at number two in the division, and Romero at number three, the Las Vegas clash has all the hallmarks of a title eliminator.

The two were due to fight in February, and again in April, but both fights were cancelled at short notice.
