UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs. Mousasi II fight card

A look at the September 5th UFC Fight Night on Fox Sports 1 in Ledyard, CT, which sees middleweight stalwarts Ronaldo Souza and Gegard Mousasi

Boris Streubel

The last time Ronaldo Souza and Gegard Mousasi fought was in 2008 in Japan, where Mousasi knocked out Jacare with an upkick. Mike Goldberg wasn't present to yell out "watch for the upkick!", and with this rematch airing on Fox Sports 1 instead of the canceled UFC 176 PPV, Jacare is on his own as far as avoiding that outcome.

This September 5th Fight Night at the Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut is filled with great match-ups from top to bottom, including Alistair Overeem's co-main event bout vs. Ben Rothwell, Joe Lauzon against Michael Chiesa, and Nik Lentz versus Charles Oliveira II. Even the preliminary card has gems such as Rob Font against Chris Beal and Sean Soriano opposite Andre Fili.

We know the main card is complete, but the official bout order has yet to be determined. Here's the full fight lineup for next month's show:
