Jacare: 'I’d like to fight on UFC'

by Guilherme Cruz | source: tatame.com

On Tennis, the titles of all main competitions give the athletes the Grand Slam, something that names such as Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have achieved. On the fights, something similar was conquest b the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Ronaldo Jacaré.

After becoming absolute and weight champion of Jiu-Jitsu and winning ADCC on his division and on a super fight, in 2009, the Brazilian won his first MMA belt on Strikeforce, beating the tough Tim Kennedy.

 “I feel pretty good being the current champion of Strikeforce, but I want more than that. I’d like to fight on UFC, but for now I’m cool on Strikeforce and I don’t intend to leave the event. I want to become the number one in my division… I want to win more titles, it’s all just starting for me."

 Man, if Jacare could win the UFC MW title (assuming Anderson permanently moved up to 205 because he's not beating Silva), then he would be THE most accomplished combat sports athlete of all time. 2X Mundial Absolute Champ. ADCC Weight and Superfight Champ (not to mention Absolute runner up) Strikeforce MW Champ No one has won at the elite levels of their sport AND MMA like that.  No one.

doesn't matter cause Lawler will take that belt after he's done with Lindland and then Jacare can go to the UFC

Jacare would have made absolute mince meat out of Shields, and I like Shields.

Which Jacare wins because of his superior striking. And Maia cant get him down because Jacares wrestling is much better as well.

considering they just lost their last MW champ to the UFC, and Jacare just won the vacated belt, this has to be a little frustrating for Coker to hear shit like this there are definitely some great matchups for him in the UFC but in the meantime, i'd like to see them bring Jorge Santiago over from Sengoku and have him fight Jacare
