Ronaldo Souza To Face Jack Hermansson In Florida After Yoel Romero Pulled Out Due To illness

Earlier this week news broke that former UFC title contender Yoel Romero withdraws from UFC On ESPN 3 main event due to an illness (reportedly pneumonia) which left Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza without a dancing partner. But last night ESPN’s Brett Okamoto confirmed the news that promotion moved on to book Souza against surging swede Jack Hermansson for UFC Fort Lauderdale main event.

The event will take place on April 27 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

Jacare also declared he’d willing to retire from sports if a win at Florida doesn’t earn him a middleweight title shot. Unfortunately, he never got a chance at a title in the UFC despite sitting at the top of the division from the past five years. During those years he loses a key fight like a split decision loss to Romero back in 2015 then got knocked out from the hands of Robert Whittaker in 2017 and most recently came up short via split decision loss to Kelvin Gastelum, who’s slated to face Israel Adesanya for an interim 185 pound strap on April 13th at UFC 236.

Hermansson (19-4) is making a quick turn around as he’s coming off a submission win over Dave Branch at UFC Philadelphia on March 30. Jack holds notable wins over the likes of as Gegard Mousasi, Vitor Belfort, Robbie Lawler, Tim Kennedy, and Tim Boetsch.
