Jacare is no joke, he could very well be the new mw champion by next year.
    I'd be honestly happy to be wrong here. But I keep thinking of the Buddy *Roberts fight - where he was getting worked in the stand up and had to return to the ground game. Overall, I think his chin is fading, his standup is failing to improve defensively, and his ground game is becoming predictable against the top fighters with gameplans (exclude one of my favorites, Belcher, from that for the obvious reasons).

    And totally agreed that a lost to Jacare shouldn't be the tipping point in assessing his career. That dude is increasingly scary!
