Luke Rockhold and “Jacare” Souza are going to fight again, as the UFC has announced that the middleweight contenders will battle on November 26th.

The fight will headline UFC Fight Night 101, which will take place at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia (on the 27th in standard local time).

Rockhold and Souza battled for the first time back in 2011 under the Strikeforce banner, and the latter lost the bout via unanimous decision.

More recently, at UFC 198 in May, Souza (23-4) quickly stopped Vitor Belfort. Rockhold (15-3), meanwhile, was KO’d by Michael Bisping in June and lost the middleweight title.

Rockhold is currently ranked #1 in the UFC’s 185 division and Souza is #3.
