Cool. Being a jiu jitsu guy myself I am very interested to see if his grappling can live up to the hype.

He's actually had 2 guys submit to strikes while he was in the mount. He even passed on an Americana to keep punching in a dudes face. He doesn't rely on his JJ as much as you think he would. Guys well rounded.

And if you watch his first fight, he chooses to keep it standing the whole time. He gets caught and KO'd, but he isn't afraid to stay on his feet.

Souza's JJ is ridiculous, otherworldy even.

Here's him vs. Marcelo Garcia who is also a phenom. Submits him in less than 3 minutes.

This is great news! The UFC really needs some help in the MW division. I expect big things from him in MMA.

Awesome!! From what i saw of his recent fights, his stand-up has improved as well as his already godly BJJ. The question is would he be able to dethrone Silva? I can see him getting past Macdonald, Okami, Kampmann and even Franklin but Silva's striking may be a bit much for Jacare at the moment..
