MayheM Vs. Jacare 3 In Talks For DREAM 11

0

From MMAMania.com:

The charismatic Jason “Mayhem” Miller is in talks to once again do battle with grappling phenom Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at DREAM 11 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, in September, according to “Mayhem’s” Twitter.

No specific date has been set for the event at this time.

The bout will once again be contested for the vacant DREAM middleweight title because the former holder, Gegard Mousasi (24-2-1), relinquished the strap to prepare for a move up to light heavyweight.

This will be the third encounter between the bitter rivals “Jacare” and “Mayhem” – the pair first met during the promotion’s middleweight grand prix quarterfinals at “DREAM 4 in June 2008. The bout would go the distance and the conclusion would see Souza garner a unanimous decision victory.

The second outing between the pair would be nearly as decisive – it was halted early in the first round because of an errant blow from Miller to a downed Souza. The strike carved a deep laceration to Souza’s head, which forced ringside officials to call off the match prematurely because of its severity.

The fight was ruled a no contest.

The outcome brought their rivalry to new heights, as well as left the DREAM middleweight title vacant. It now appears that we’ll have to wait till September to get a more decisive outcome and a new champion
