Jacare Souza StrikeforceRonaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza may be the most dangerous man in the MMA world on the ground, but he let his hands do all the work in his fight against Derek Brunson.

With a potential middleweight title shot on the line, both Jacare and Brunson had to know an impressive victory could get them the next crack at champion Luke Rockhold.

A former two-time All-American Division II wrestler, Brunson decided to stand and trade with the multi-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion, but it all backfired after an aggressive attack was countered.

Brunson rushed forward with strikes and Jacare threw a perfectly timed right hook that clipped his opponent’s chin and sent him face first to the canvas. Brunson rolled over and tried to regain his balance, but Jacare pounced on him like a lion on a gazelle.

Jacare fired a couple of more punches on the ground and Brunson’s arms went limp as the referee rushed in for the save.

The win now moves Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza to 2-0 since losing the Strikeforce middleweight title to Luke Rockhold in 2011.

“I’m very prepared for everyone, any time,” said Souza.

Now it looks like Souza will get his chance at redemption with his next fight likely coming against Rockhold with the middleweight belt on the line.
