Souza (26-7) is another former titleholder at 185 pounds who is looking for a fresh start at 205. The Brazilian submission specialist is coming off a decision loss to Jack Hermansson in April. Souza, who is a former Strikeforce middleweight champion, has never fought for a UFC championship, despite a 9-4 record.
