Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza thinks he ranks high in the middleweight division and is eyeing an early return next year. The former Strikeforce middleweight champion joined the UFC this year and has taken a pair of quick wins.
“I was very happy with my last performance,” said Souza to TATAME. “I think I’m on the right track. Because I hurt my foot a little, I believe that the return will return in January or February next year.”
He earned Submission of the Night with an arm triangle choke against Chris Camozzi in his debut. He followed with a TKO over Yushin Okami. Both wins came in the first round.
At 19-3, Souza has won five in a row.
