Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza has been rumored to have signed with Zuffa, likely for the UFC. No official confirmation has been made by the handlers of the grappling wizard and 5-1 MMA veteran, nor has the UFC confirmed a contract has been signed. “MMA Movement” was one of the first media sources to post the rumor, but many have followed since.

The man whose nickname means “Alligator,” is a Brazilian, whose BJJ is beyond noteworthy. One noteable win, not because of how it was won, or who it was he beat, but just for humor sake, Jacare has beaten Alexander Shlemenko. I could make the obvious joke, but I assume any MMA fan can make their own joke to insert here.
