Souza Camp Eyeing Dan Henderson 205 Bout

Ronaldo Jacare Souza

“I believe Jacare already proved that he deserves a shot at the middleweight title, but, once he’s recovered from this second elbow surgery in January, it’s the same time as Chris and Belfort, so what can we do? I like the idea of putting Jacare in a special light heavyweight fight. I truly believe that, with the exception of Rafael ‘Feijao’ and Rogerio ‘Minotouro,’ Jacare can fight anyone in that division as preparation to face the winner of Vitor and Chris. I don’t think it’s fair that Jacare should cut weight to fight in the division where he’s ranked No. 2. Jacare already fought in open-weight matches during his jiu-jitsu career. I would love to see him facing Henderson in February, on the same card that Belfort will face Weidman. Henderson is a legend, and the fans would love to see that match up. But, Ronaldo could face anyone in that division except Rogerio and Feijao. I don’t see any problem with making that test. The world needs to know the potential of Ronaldo Jacare.”

In a recent interview with Sherdog.com, Souza’s trainer, Josuel Distak said he would like to see ‘Jacare’ return to action against MMA legend, Dan “Hendo” Henderson.
