MMA Community reacts to Jacare Souza’s impressive victory over Derek Brunson!
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza got back in the win column tonight in Charlotte.
The Brazilian submission specialist earned a first-round knockout victory over Derek Brunson in the main event of UFC on FOX 27.
Souza was able to land a big head kick that had Brunson in all sorts of trouble. From there, Jacare would follow up with some heavy punches that forced the referee to step in and call a stop to the contest.
Here is how the MMA Community reacted to Jacare Souza’s big win in Charlotte:
Everyone who tells me the shield defense doesn’t work in MMA take a look at what @JacareMMA just did. If he tried to slip he would’ve been caught. Shield was perfect against Brunson’s looping punches. Every technique has its place #ufconfox

Great stoppage by the ref. I don’t think Jacare was going to let Brunson get his equilibrium back and those punches had some heat on them. #UFCCharlotte

Old habits are hard to break. Forward advancement from Brunson makes him raise his own chin. Brunson and Jacare do it again. #UFCCharlotte

Jacare Souza makes it 2-0 against Derek Brunson. First round KO. Title shot aspirations still alive at 38 years old. Great win.
