Ronaldo Souza vs. Francis Carmont full fight video preview online for UFC Fight Night 36

The co-main event of tonight's (Sat., Feb. 15, 2014) UFC Fight Night 36: "Machida vs. Mousasi" FOX Sports 1 broadcast will feature a middleweight showcase pitting Ronaldo Souza opposite Francis Carmont in what could very well determine the next contender at 185 pounds, depending on how the main event plays out.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator Joe Rogan takes one final look at the main and co-main events for tonight's (Feb. 15, 2014) FOX Sports 1 extravaganza, UFC Fight Night 36, which takes place inside Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Since we already went in-depth with the headlining act and potential title eliminator bout between top middleweights Lyoto Machida vs. Gegard Mousasi, you can simply click here for their final fighting words.

For the rest of us, skip ahead to the 1:38 mark for the co-headliner featuring a tough 185-pound scrap pitting former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza opposite power-punching Parisian Francis Carmont. While the winner is probably second in line when it comes to title shots, anything can happen.

If "Jacare" goes out and scores a one-hitter quitter or bone-crunching submission -- while "The Dragon" dances and prances his way to the scorecards -- the conversation could get very, very interesting.

Especially in light of the UFC 173 middleweight title fight between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort (details), which takes place over Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. Long story short: We have this division locked up for the rest of the year.

Or at least until this X-factor comes back. will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 36 fight card on fight night (Feb. 15, 2014), starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" at 7 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 1-televised main card bouts at 10:30 p.m. ET.

See you then!
