Chris Camozzi vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza
It’s co-main event time, as Chris Camozzi (19-5) puts his four-fight win streak on the line against former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (17-3), who has won three straight since a loss to main event fighter Luke Rockhold in 2011. The referee is Mario Yamasaki.
Round 1: This could be the biggest night of Camozzi’s MMA life, as a win over Souza would propelled him to new heights. Souza showing why he is considered one of the best grapplers in the game, holding Camozzi down and working some ground-and-pound to pass. Souza has an arm of Camozzi tied up, but releases to move to side control. And, just like that, Souza shows why he is a force, moving to the mount and locking in a side-arm choke. This one is over.
