Jacaré answers Rockhold’s challenge: “I want my belt back”
Jacaré answers Rockhold’s challenge: “I want my belt back” :: TATAME
Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza returns to the Strikeforce cage on August 18, against Derek Brunson, but his focused on earning a chance to bringing the Strikeforce middleweight championship back to Brazil, after the current champion Luke Rockhold called him out following his unanimous decision win over Tim Kennedy, last Saturday. |
“He challenged me because our last fight was so close. He feels he needs to show himself that he’s able to defeat me,” Souza told TATAME. “If he wants to fight me, I want my belt back. I wanna prove the world that that fight is past and I can defeat him, in five, six or seven rounds”.
The former champion said he’d do a better preparation for a new fight against Rockhold, better than his camp in 2011.
“I’d go there with a strategy way better than the last one,” he guarantees. “I won’t let him impose his game, which suffocates the opponent. That was crucial for making the judges give him the win”.
Rockhold wasn’t happy with his own performance last Saturday, when he defeated Tim Kennedy, but ‘Jacare’ said he enjoyed the battle.
“When you fight a tough guy, that has a crazy and weird game, that can happen,” Ronaldo said. “Tim Kennedy is an animal, so strong. The fight was cool, nice to watch”.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
