“In Japan, I helped him to cut weight and after that I fought Mousasi on the same day. That’s part of the sport. If he needs help this fight cutting weight, I will help him again no problem. We are friends out of the Octagon and we fight inside the Octagon. That’s part of the sport. A few months ago, Mousasi was here in Brazil and we had lunch together. We’re friends and that’s just part of the sport.”

In a recent interview with FOX Sports, tonight’s UFC Fight Night 50 main event fighter, Jacare Souza explained why he offered assistance to his opponent, Gegard Mousasi ahead of their bout.
