Jacare returns for UFC 208 bout with Boetsch

Back in action for the first time since his May knockout of Vitor Belfort, No. 3-ranked middleweight contender Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza will face Tim Boetsch in a pivotal UFC 208 bout at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on Feb. 11.

In the UFC 208 main event, Holly Holm meets Germaine de Randamie in a five-round clash for the first UFC women’s featherweight title.

Winner of nine of his last 10 bouts, Brazil's Souza is on the fast track to a shot at the middleweight title, with his UFC 198 win over Belfort a loud statement to the rest of the division. But with consecutive knockouts of Josh Samman and Rafael Natal, the No. 14-ranked Boetsch has stormed back into the top 15, and he can make a sizeable leap up the 185-pound ladder with a win over "Jacare."
