All-Star Trio of Fights Set for CT

The Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut will be the host for one of the biggest UFC Fight Night events of the year, as the co-main event of the postponed UFC 176 card between middleweight contenders Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza is now the main event on September 5.

A rematch of their 2008 bout, Mousasi knocked Souza out the first time around. Since then, both have gone on to win Strikeforce titles and become UFC contenders. In their most recent bouts, Mousasi submitted Mark Munoz in the first round in May, and Souza decisioned Francis Carmont in February.

Plus, two other matchups have been verbally agreed to for the card, and the heavyweight division is likely to get a shake up as Alistair Overeem battles Ben Rothwell, and Matt Mitrione takes on Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis.
