Jacare has a better chance at winning this fight standing than CP has if the fight hits the mat.

That's meaningless. I'm not saying Jacara is necessarily going to lose, but if he can't get Costa to the ground his advantage there doesn't enter into the equation, and Costa has very good TDD.

And I do think Costa is the better striker, not by a landslide, but he's better.

I'd have to rewatch the fight but I think Boetsch took Costa down and Boetsch also rocked him towards the end of the first round, Jacare meanwhile has looked like a monster in his last two and is very strong for 185.

Sure. But people are acting as if Jacare has him completely out-gunned and that just isn't the case at all.
