Report: Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza signs with Strikeforce

Fresh on the heels of today’s announcement that Jake Shields will be fighting this Fall for the Strikeforce interim middleweight championship, Graciemag.com is reporting that Ronaldo Souza has been added to the 185-pound roster with a — you guessed it — Fall 2009 debut.

“Jacare” is perhaps best known (outside of his ridiculous jits) for his battles with Jason Miller over in DREAM. He outpointed “Mayhem” back in 2008 and their rematch was ruled a ‘no contest’ after Souza was split open with a kick that officials deemed illegal.

No word yet on what will happen to their planned third tilt scheduled for DREAM 11 in light of this recent news.

Jacare is a great addition to the Strikeforce middleweight roster, but LOL at the idea that it's an equal or even better division than the UFC 185 lb class. Love Strikeforce, they're gonna put on great shows with great match ups, but let's keep it real: Silva, Hendo, Marquardt, Belford, Okami, Maia...come on now...

I can't find the vid, but Jacare doing the one-armed rope climb is one of my faves. I hope he does well! He is a gifted grappler.

 Strikeforce does have a surprisingly deep MW division but the UFC's is better... Some great fights for Jacare there.

Evan Tanner? Those UFC contracts really don't expire until you've fulfilled your contractual obligations, do they? Even in death...
