Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Derek Brunson will headline the January UFC event planned for Charlotte.

The two will collide on January 27 in a five-round middleweight affair.

Souza (24-5) is coming off a loss to interim UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in April. Back in 2012, he knocked out Brunson when both were competing in Strikeforce.

Brunson (18-5) has won back-to-back fights, including a knockout of Lyoto Machida earlier this year.
