Could the winner be in line for a middleweight title shot?

Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo Souza will settle an old score when they hook 'em up in the co-main event of the upcoming UFC 176: "Aldo vs. Mendes 2" pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, which takes place on Aug. 2, 2014 inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Press-Telegram reported the 185-pound match up on Wednesday.

Mousasi (35-4) defeated Souza (20-3) by way of up-kick knockout nearly six years ago in the finals of the DREAM middleweight grand prix. Since then, "The Dreamcatcher" has gone 11-2-1 with wins over Mark Hunt, Ovince St. Preux, and most recently, Mark Munoz.

Not to shabby.

"Jacare" has been no slouch himself, embarking on a torrid 10-1 run (1 NC) that includes wins over Tim Kennedy, Robbie Lawler, Yushin Okami, and Francis Carmont. The Brazilian -- demonstrating much-improved stand up -- has seven finishes during that span.

Who takes part two?

UFC 176 will be headlined by a featherweight match up pitting Jose Aldo against Chad Mendes, in a championship rematch from their UFC 142 encounter in Brazil, which "Junior" won by knockout.

Elsewhere on the card, Fabricio Camoes and Gray Maynard collide in lightweight action, while Shayna Baszler and Bethe Correia settle their rivalry in women's bantamweight action.
