Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza signs UFC contract

Quote:
Looking to bolster its middleweight division, the UFC perhaps signed the most dynamic Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom on the planet, Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza. That’s the latest news from the Porto do Vale Tudo forums, which explains that an announcement was made at an Amazon Challenge event. In fact, Brazilian television even picked up the story, demonstrating just how highly regarded the talented grappler is in his country.
Jacare has a solid mixed martial arts record (5-1), but has never made it past the first round in any of those six fights. He has five submission wins to his credit during those contests.
The “Alligator” (Jacare translated) is a two-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion who placed second in the absolute division of the 2005 Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) world championships, losing to Roger Gracie by submission (rear naked choke).
He also competed against UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture in a Professional Submission League grappling match last year, taking “The Natural” to a scoreless draw.
(Thanks to FightOpinion.com for the assist.)

HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This guy has the most amazing BJJ you will ever see. Him Marcelo and Roger you can make a case for any of them as the top grappler in the world.
He is kind of a small guy but is real strong no body fat and walks around at 190 to 195

Wow this is pretty great news. Jacare is a VERY highly regarded grappler. And I don't mean UFC Hypeish "World Class Grappler", I mean that this guy is the real deal.

There is a lot of potential in Jacare, and if he learns more aspects of MMA, I can see him as a major threat to Anderson.

Yeah baby!! This is awesome. I've always wanted to see Souza do higher level MMA. I see him racking up a TON of Submission of the Night bonuses.

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.

Yeah man its great to see the 3 top BJJ guys in the world all get into MMA. He dosen't get quite as much hype as Marcelo and Roger, but can beat either one on any given day.
Ronaldo has some real good wrestling to go with his BJJ, and he should have some Boxing/Muay Thai skills since he has been training MMA for the past 4 years.
I am really excited for his debut

Yeah for sure. His stand up isn't anything to laugh at. He's not gonna get any T(KO)'s but its good enough to hold his own till he gets a takedown. And if he fights someone with great TD Defense, he's one of the best I've ever seen at pulling guard. So its going to the ground, whether his opponent likes it or not.

Amazing. Just when we thought MW has no other high quality match ups other than Rich Vs Anderson, here comes Jagare. Great news for UFC MW.

EXCELLENT news for the MW division. Jacare is a world-class bjj practitioner, people better work hard on their takedown defense and submission defense!

I have heard a lot about thsi guy. About his mma and jiu jitsu. Hows his game besides his jiu jitsu? I will have to watch some of his grappling matches, I have heard he is ridiculous. If nothing else it will add excitement to the 185 pound division
