Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (24-5-0, 1NC) will rematch No. 7 Derek Brunson (18-5-0) in the main event of UFC on FOX 27 in Charlotte.

Souza, 37, won the first encounter with Brunson decisively in Strikeforce, registering a 41-second TKO win five years ago. He is looking to return to the win column after a loss to Robert Whittaker at UFC on FOX 24.

UFC on FOX 27 is scheduled for Jan. 27 at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Current bouts include:

Ronaldo Souza (24-5-0, 1NC) vs. Derek Brunson (18-5-0)

Ovince St. Preux (22-10-0) vs Ilir Latifi (13-5-0)
