A pivotal fight between two of the UFC’s top middleweights has been rebooked, as the promotion has announced that Yoel Romero and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will fight on April 18th.

The bout will co-headline UFC on FOX 15, which will be hosted by the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The two were scheduled to fight later this month at UFC 184, but Souza had to battle pneumonia and the bout was called off.

Romero (9-1) has won five straight bouts since joining the UFC, and the decorated wrestler is currently ranked #6 in the promotion’s 185 division.

Souza (21-3) is riding a seven fight win streak and has won all four of his UFC bouts to date. The renowned grappler is positioned at #2 in the middleweight division.

UFC on FOX 15 will be headlined by a fight between middleweight contenders Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold.
