January 6, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Jacare Souza’s manager has a unique way of soliciting opponents for his client. Gilberto Faria posted a fake Craigslist ad on Instagram seeking an opponent four Souza and referring interested candidates to matchmaker Mick Maynard and Dana White. You can see the post below.

Apparently the tachic worked, as MMAjunkie reports that Souza is now set to face Tim Boetsch at UFC 208. Faria confirmed to the site that verbal agreements are in place for the show, though the UFC has yet to formally announce the bout.

UFC 208 takes place on February 11th in Brooklyn, New York. The main card airs live on PPV after prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
