    There's a good chance Vitor doesn't get licensed for UFC 175 and Jacare has been looking for an oppponent for later this year. Chael already admitted he was going to have some problems making 185 for UFC 175 so maybe push it back to 176 or 177 and I think it would make a great fight. First choice would've been Jacare vs. Rockhold but Rockhold doesn't seem to want it stating he already beat him "convincingly" and doesn't need to do it again.

    So what do you guys think?

    Worst matchup for Chael but who knows how it goes, Jacare gave a round to Carmont ffs and Chael is a beast.

    Nothing convincing in Rockholds "victory" over Jacare. Chael gets tapped out in record time too.

    He said he wants to fight in August. If Chael is having weight troubles like he said, he won't mind the date change.

    Chael will be off the card of the Vitor fight falls through, so, why not?

    I sort of feel like Chael needs to be in matches where there may be a semblance of heat. Jacare vs Chael would probably be pretty lifeless even though as a fight, it seems reasonable enough. It just feels like it'd be a waste of Chael's marquee value. I think Tim Kennedy vs Jacare Souza II would be a perfect fight but Kennedy seems locked up with Mousasi potentially. If Rockhold doesn't want the Jacare fight then it almost feels like Jacare is SOL.

    CB Dollaway in a stay busy fight?

    This fight never crossed my mind but Christ on a bike that would be an interesting match-up.
    Nice idea TS.
    It would end up a more vicious Chael-Maia 2 in my humble opinion.

    Chael would control Dollaway with ease and earn a dominant UD victory, in my opinion.

    Sort of agree with you, I don't think there would be much pre right trash talk and more of a level of respect kinda like Chael/Stann. Chael won't talk much because he knows if it goes to the ground which it will, he's at a disadvantage. Dolloway would work I guess. He's on a nice streak. I wanna see him fight Yoel Romero though.

    Well how about Jacare vs Yoel Romero? Might've stumbled upon something there.

    Can Jacare handle teh explosion? He looks half explosive himself.

    There was nothing convincing about Rockhold's win over Jacare. It was a boring snooze fest.

    I think Chael has improved his game enough to not get insta subbed once it hits the mat. I see it being a little more interesting than that.

    I thought it was pretty good/kind of exciting. I thought Kennedy vs Jacare was awful.
