The highly anticipated octagon debut of former Strikeforce title holder Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza took place on Saturday night when he faced off against Chris Camozzi in the co-main event of UFC on FX 8. As you would expect, Souza easily stormed past Camozzi and made an immediate impression on the UFC fans. Souza needed just over three and a half minutes to secure the fight ending choke.
As soon as Jacare got the fight to the mat, he was able to dominate with his world class jiu jitsu. Once Jacare locked in the head-arm triangle, Camozzi was almost immediately unconscious.
The UFC stage wasn’t too big and he is now a serious contender in the division.
