Well recently through mma media i've heard Gegard Mousasi more talked about as a possible number one at MW, a guy who's not even in the UFC and Jacare dominated for three rounds then submitted Mousasi. He had a split decision war with Kelvin Gastelum and lost a very close decision. Yoel Romero also beat Jacare by split decision in a match that even Joe Rogan said on his podcast that he'd thought Jacare had won. Not to mention a 2nd round cage grab by Yoel that obviously prevented a TD in that round. The ref even stopped the match and warned Yoel of the cage grab put the fight started back on there feet and although Jacare probably still won that round it prevented a early td that could have changed the outcome of that match. Jacare did get a TD in the 3rd round and dominated Yoel with ground and pound for 2 minutes or so. Jacare got dropped bad in the first round but ok he lost a split decision. There was of course his bad showing against Robert Whitaker. He had a recent torn shoulder/Pectorial injury which is actually visuable if you pay attention in that fight. Its like a bend in his pec muscle where the shoulder pec muscle connect. Very serious I actually had the same injury, I could train but my whole arm was weak and compromised. It was never talked about in maistream media, I heard about it here in Brazil but from what I saw it wasn't covered much here either. He had a serious sugery for it after the fight which I didn't even do myself cause of all the trouble the sugery would cause. Now those are all his UFC losses in his 9 UFC wins include names as ex champion Chris Weidman(KO), ex title contender Yushin Okami(TKO), ex UFC champion Vitor Belfort(TKO), Derek Brunso(KO) Mousasi,Boestch and Camozzi by submission. Not to mention Robbie Lawler, Tim Kennedy, Matt Lindland and Ed Herman all current or ex UFC fighters. He's ranked 4th under Romero and Gastelum who he had two split decision losses that could have easily been ruled wins... My point is I don't feel Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza is getting anyway near the respect he deserves. After Gastelum/Whitaker fight its either him or Yoel by the rankings and last I heard Yoel couldn't fight Paulo Costa cause of injury so lets get Jacare some respect guys. Throw in a good Jacare mix here at the end, guys one of the greatest submission grapplers of all time too.
