Just a day after Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza said he was fighting Derek Brunson on February 3rd in Belem, Brazil, Brunson responded saying they are fighting on a different day.
Brunson responded to Jacare on Twitter with this post
That’s weird. I accepted for Jan 27th in Charlotte, NC. I’ll be in touch after this weekend’s fight! See you in NC.
Jacare has not fought since April when he was knocked out by Robert Whittaker. Brunson on the other hand has been red hot. He has back to back knockout wins over Daniel Kelly and Lyoto Machida.
Jacare and Brunson fought each other in a StrikeForce card in 2012, where Jacare won by knockout.
The UFC has yet to announce when the two are fighting.
