UFC Ft. Lauderdale: How to watch Souza vs. Hermansson, fight card, start time, streaming info

The UFC returns to Florida for the first time in 14 months and 12th time overall with UFC Ft. Lauderdale, which originally was set to air on ESPN until an unfortunate sequence of events occurred.

In the main event, a middleweight clash is set as Ronaldo Souza meets Jack Hermansson. Originally, Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa were supposed to fight each other, but it fell through after Costa withdrew. Souza stepped in for a rematch against Romero, but then Romero withdrew earlier this month, which is when Hermansson stepped in to take on Souza.

In the co-main event, former NFL All-Pro Greg Hardy makes his sophomore UFC appearance, looking to rebound from a disqualification loss when he meets Dmitrii Smoliakov in a heavyweight bout.
