It wasn’t that long ago really when “Jacare” Souza, and not Luke Rockhold, was the consensus favorite to fight Chris Weidman next. But after Mr. Rockhold took out Lyoto Machida in April, the ‘he’s the #1 contender’ winds started drifting in his direction.

Yes, thanks to a four fight winning streak and a memorable, one sided win over Machida at UFC on FOX 15, Rockhold is fighting the middleweight champ on December 12th. Souza, on the other hand, is going to take on Yoel Romero.

In advance of UFC 194 the UFC has posted Rockhold’s submission win over Machida, and you can check it out below.
