Comparing Belfort's and Jacare's performance against Rockhold...

I know this is technically MMA math, but it does show a level of fighting. Jacare is an incredible fighter and had a really close 5 round fight with Rockhold. Vitor, on the other hand, murdered Rockhold within 2-3 minutes I believe. What can that tell us about their levels?

Yes, styles matter, but that is a drastic difference in how they handled their opponents. Is Vitor that much more of a killer? Was it a bad night for Jacare? He did seem to tire, and Rockhold has good cardio.

Jacare has improved leaps and bounds since that fight.

that trt is a hell of a supplement especially when your taking it where your local testing agency is a joke and cant be trusted.

there is a reason why the world cup athletes specimens will be tested in switzerland and not brazil.

Rockhold is pretty under rated around here and put on a great performance against Jacare. He had a chance to prove how good he is against Vitor but got caught. I think he's gonna put some good wins together if he can stay healty. Not to mention he's the #2 p4p best looking guy in the business behind teh sex of course.

Standing, with his hand speed and power, Vitor is about as dangerous as anyone in MMA for that 1st round. He has the ability to 'catch' anyone from 185 up through HW.

Jacare is knocking dudes out now. And he can still submit people. He has improved faster than Rockhold since their last fight.
