UFC Fight Announcement Roundup: UFC on Fox 15
Ronaldo Jacare Souza and Yoel Romero were supposed to face off earlier this year, but Jacare was sick and could not fight. Due to the Middleweight title fight also being pushed back due to injury neither fighter has lost a step. Now, the two will face off in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 15 where in the main event other top Middleweights Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold face off. It could be whoever wins more impressively will walk away with the next title shot.
UFC Fight Announcement Roundup: Bader vs. Cormier
Daniel Cormier will fight again for the first time after losing his title shot to Jon Jones. He will face off with Ryan Bader who has won his last four straight fights.
