'Jacare' Souza vs. Kelvin Gastelum booked for UFC 224 *POLL*

A middleweight matchup between Kelvin Gastelum and Ronaldo Souza is confirmed for UFC 224.

The UFC’s official Brazilian Twitter account today announced the high-profile fight for the early summer card, which takes place May 12 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The event’s main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Gastelum (14-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) vowed never to return to Brazil after a first-round TKO over ex-champ Vitor Belfort was overturned in the wake of a positive drug test. For an opportunity against “Jacare” Souza (25-5 MMA, 8-2 UFC), though, he’s apparently willing to make an exception.

A win over Souza would undoubtedly give Gastelum a stronger case for a title shot, which greatly improved after his first-round knockout of ex-champ Michael Bisping in his previous octagon performance this past November.

Originally slated to face ex-champ Anderson Silva, Gastelum took on Bisping after Silva failed an out-of-competition drug test, his second potential anti-doping violation. The win over Bisping put Gastelum back on the right foot after a submission setback against Chris Weidman last July.

Souza got back to the win column last month when he halted the streaking Derek Brunson, ending the fight with a first-round head kick. A prior loss to current champ Robert Whittaker put him on the road to redemption.

The current lineup for UFC 224 includes:

Champ Amanda Nunes vs. Raquel Pennington – for women’s bantamweight title
Ronaldo Souza vs. Kelvin Gastelum
Vitor Belfort vs. Lyoto Machida
Nick Hein vs. Davi Ramos
Ramazan Emeev vs. Alberto Mino
Junior Albini vs. Aleksei Oliynyk
Cezar Ferreira vs. Karl Roberson
