Was rewatching old Strikeforce fights today and forgot just how good Rockhold vs. Jacare was. There's actually very few wars that exist in the history of 185 in Strikeforce and the UFC but this fight is definitely toward the top. It was amazing to see an unknown guy in Rockhold who was ranked number 52 or 53 at the time go up agaisnt a prime Jacare who held the title and score the upset. The fight itself was awesome. Jacare was throwing heat from the start and Luke's chin suorisingly held up well. His defensive wrestling was a thing of beauty in this fight and he never allowed Jacare to gain a dominant position and thwarted most of his takedowns. He also took Jacare's patented right hand and was able to recover and start to take control. The third and fourth rounds saw a momentum shift for Luke and he displayed some amazing kicks that he has become known for. He tuned Jacare up and never took his foot off the gas. Then in the last round Souza finally scores a desperation takedown but is unable to do much with it. Very close fight but a UD for Rockhold was the right call. Then both of these guys go on to stay at the top of the division for years to come. Awesome fight and one of the many great highlights of the middleweight division.
