Souza to headline against Blachowicz, White says

MMA

A light heavyweight matchup between Jan Blachowicz and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will headline UFC Fight Night on Nov. 16 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, according to UFC president Dana White.

The UFC Fight Night event will take place at Ginasio do Ibirapuera and air on ESPN+.

Blachowicz (24-8), of Poland, is coming off a second-round knockout of former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 239 in July. He has won five of his past six contests.

Souza (26-7) is another former titleholder at 185 pounds who is looking for a fresh start at 205. The Brazilian submission specialist is coming off a decision loss to Jack Hermansson in April. Souza, who is a former Strikeforce middleweight champion, has never fought for a UFC championship, despite a 9-4 record.
