Shortly after the bout’s conclusion “Jacare” revealed he’d hurt his left hand in the fight’s first round and was limited by the damage despite looking fairly sharp on his feet.

No specific turnaround time was mentioned but, with Souza sidelined for at least a few months, it looks as though Tim Kennedy should now be set for the next shot at Rockhold’s belt as had been expected.

They mentioned his opponent's brother, Jesse Marunde during the broadcast. I'm kinda sad to read he died in 2007. I always wondered what happened to him - I thought that guy was going to beat everyone in the World's Strongest Man competition... site profile image
