It’s been an average year for the 35-year-old “Primetime.” He fought only once, but it was a tough split-decision victory over Antonio Carlos Jr. at UFC on ESPN+ 16 in April. It adds up to a current two fight winning streak.
So I heard @darrentill2 said something about he’s happy that all the middle weights are calling him out lol and he’s the money fight.. bro you’re like the guy that skip’t the line at Starbucks we just all want to beat your ass for it 🤣

2019 is probably a year “Jacare” will want to forget. He dropped two decisions to Jan Blachowicz in November and Jack Hermansson in April and has lost three of his last four bouts. One can be sure that the 40-year-old Brazilian wants to return to the win column impressively in Brooklyn.
UFC 249 is scheduled for April 18 at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York. Current scheduled bouts are:
Uriah Hall (15-9-0) vs. Ronaldo Souza (26-8-0, 1NC)
Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0-0) vs. Tony Ferguson (25-3-0)
More bouts are expected to be announced.
