Mousasi-Jacare II Set for UFC 176

Nearly six years after their first meeting in 2008, top middleweight contenders Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza will battle it out once more on August 2 in the UFC 176 co-main event at Los Angeles' STAPLES Center.

In their first fight, Mousasi knocked out Souza in the first round. 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.
