On Saturday, April 27, the UFC hosted its eighth event on ESPN+ from the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla.
In the night’s main event, Brazilian submission specialist Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza took on late-notice opponent Jack Hermansson. Souza was originally tabbed to rematch Cuba’s Yoel Romero, but the wrestler was diagnosed with pneumonia and pulled from the card. Jacare is coming off a third-round knockout victory of former champion Chris Weidman in his last outing. Sweden’s Hermansson competes for the second time in the month, having submitted David Branch in less than a round.
After a five-round battle, Hermansson took all three scorecards.
