Join us today on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, round scoring, and play-by-play as UFC on ESPN+ 8: Jacare vs. Hermansson comes to the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
The headliner takes place in the middleweight division, where a series of changes have led Jacare Souza to take on Jack Hermansson, who is fighting for the second time in a month. Jacare has allegedly been offered a title shot with a win here.
The co-main event will see controversial Greg Hardy looking for his first UFC win when he meets Dmitry Smolyakov.
The event was originally scheduled to fully air on big ESPN, but due to the changes, it is now an ESPN+ main card. The three-fight preliminary card starts at 5:30pm ET/2:30pm PT on ESPN+. Things move to big ESPN for four fights at 7pm ET, and then the six-fight main card goes back to ESPN+ at 9pm ET.
