Ronaldo Souza will lock horns with Andre Muniz at UFC 262.

Combate was first to report the middleweight bout. UFC 262 takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston and is headlined by a lightweight championship clash between Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira. As of now, fans will be allowed to attend the event at full capacity.

Souza has fallen on hard times of late, losing four of his last five Octagon appearances. After five-round decision defeats in headlining bouts against Jan Blachowicz and Jack Hermansson, “Jacare” was knocked out by Kevin Holland in the opening stanza at UFC 256 in his most recent outing this past December. The 41-year-old Brazilian’s last victory came in November 2018, when he scored a knockout of Chris Weidman at UFC 230.

The 31-year-old Muniz earned a pair of victories on Dana White’s Contender Series before joining the Las Vegas-based promotion. “Sergipano” then outpointed Antonio Arroyo in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 164 before tapping Bartosz Fabinski in the opening frame at UFC Fight Night 176 this past September.
