Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contenders, Ronaldo Souza and Vitor Belfort, will bang it out in the UFC 198 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event later tonight (Sat., May 14, 2016) inside Arena da Baixada stadium in Curitiba, Brazil.
Belfort is coming off a first-round knockout victory over Dan Henderson last November; his first win since failing to capture the middleweight title against former champion Chris Weidman six months prior. Souza, meanwhile, had his eight-fight win streak snapped more recently by Yoel Romero at UFC 194, losing out on his own title fight in the process.
Now “Jacare” will shift his focus on getting one more victory, as a win over “The Phenom” should get him his much-desired championship bout. A victory for Belfort, on the other hand, might warrant him another go-around against Luke Rockhold, this time with bigger stakes on the line.
