“It seems I’m always one fight away from the title fight. It’s funny, I fought Mousasi and that was supposed to be a title eliminator. Then I was going to fight Romero and he got hurt, but a month later he was fighting Lyoto, which I thought was weird. But I’ll be ready, I’ll do some great work and I’ll impress everybody.”
“Both are about the same to me. Rockhold stole my Strikeforce belt, so I still have that stuck in my throat. Weidman has this whole ‘Brazilian Killer’ thing, which I don’t buy. Vinny Magalhaes finished him with a flying armbar and he lost to Andre Galvao at ADCC. And he will lose to me, as well.”
UFC middleweight and former Strikeforce champion ‘Jacare’ Souza is frustrated with the fact that he has yet to receive a title shot in the UFC.
He told Sportv that he isn’t sure why it hasn’t happened yet, considering on several occasions he thought he was fighting for the number one contender position. Still, he says he will just continue to impress and believes he beats both Luke Rockhold and the champ Chris Weidman whenever he does end up facing them.
