“UFC Tonight” revealed that Romero will instead seek physical therapy for the injury and hopes to fight again by either June or July.
Romero bowing out of the contest made for the second delay in the Souza fight. The two were originally supposed to face each other at UFC 184, but Souza suffered from pneumonia leading into the contest and had to withdraw.
According to the FOX Sports 1 show, Romero still wishes to face Jacare in his next fight. Souza remained on the UFC on FOX card, instead facing and defeating Chris Camozzi in the first round.
