It looks like UFC 194 has received another, high stakes middleweight fight, as according to a report, “Jacare” Souza will fight Yoel Romero at the December 12th card.

News of the match-up, which features the #2 ranked 185’er in Souza taking on the #3 positioned Romero, is being reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal. The story cites sources close to the organization.

The middleweights have been scheduled twice before to fight this year, however, injuries delayed the bout.

Souza (22-3) is coming off a submission win over Chris Camozzi in April and has won 8 straight.

Romero (10-1) KO’d Lyoto Machida at UFC FN 70 in June, and the vaunted wrestler is riding a six fight winning streak.

UFC 194 will also feature middleweight champ Chris Weidman taking on Luke Rockhold. In the headliner, featherweight champ Jose Aldo will take on interim champ Conor McGregor.
