    A middleweight rematch between Yoel Romero and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza will headline UFC Fight Night on April 27 in Sunrise, Florida, UFC president Dana White said.

    The UFC finalized the 185-pound headliner on Thursday, White told ESPN. The event will take place at BB&T Center and air on ESPN+.

    Initially, the promotion looked into pairing Romero (13-3) with Brazilian prospect Paulo Costa (12-0), but it changed course this week. Romero, 41, was able to commit to the April 27 date only recently, due to an appearance on a Spanish-language reality show.

    Fighting out of American Top Team in south Florida, Romero is 1-2 in his past three contests. Both losses came in five-round fights against current champion Robert Whittaker.

    Souza (26-6) is coming off a riveting, third-round knockout victory over Chris Weidman at UFC 230 on Nov. 3 in New York. The former Strikeforce champion is still looking for his first UFC title shot despite a 9-3 record inside the Octagon.

    The two met previously in December 2015. Romero won a very narrow split decision in a three-round bout. ESPN ranks Romero and Souza the Nos. 2 and 4 middleweights, respectively.

    I think he might...Gegard is the best IMO and that is a very rough match for the mighty Mousasi...although Mouse loves to just strike and jab with guys....I love that match
    Israel is super skilled, future is bright
