Luke Rockhold Hurt, Chris Weidman Now Meets “Jacare” Souza

An injury to Luke Rockhold has scrapped plans for a rematch with Chris Weidman next month at UFC 230.

Instead, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will take on Weidman in the co-main event from New York City and Madison Square Garden.

With the change, Souza’s old opponent for the night, David Branch, now takes on Jared Cannonier.

Rockhold bowed out of the co-main event due to several injuries, according to multiple sources.

The card features Daniel Cormier defending his heavyweight title against Derrick Lewis.
