On Saturday, April 27, the UFC will host 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 takes 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.
The 13-fight event kicks off with three preliminary-card bouts airing live on ESPN 2 at 5:30 p.m. ET. Four additional prelims follow at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, with the six-fight main card starting at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
The fighters hit the scales at 4 p.m. ET on Friday, April 26. Video of the action (courtesy of the UFC) appears above, while the results will be posted below as they become available.
