Strikeforce Middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza has defended his title just once (vs. Robbie Lawler) since earning the title in August 2010. And once is not enough.

"I get upset. I am an MMA professional, a guy who’s always ready to fight, I keep waiting approximately six months to fight. It sucks, I don’t like that. They’re thinking of July [for another fight], but for me that’s a long time. I’m going to relax in training right now, I’m going to travel. Maybe I’ll fight in July again. I hope my new boss puts me to work more often."

 Vacate your title, and ask Coker to jump ship over to the UFC where Dana White and Joe Silva will have ZERO trouble getting you fights.

 Jacare is one of the best, he needs more fights. The MW division in SF is pretty shallow, hopefully Jacare ends up in the UFC sooner rather than later.

It's already clear that Strikeforce will keep all contracts and UFC won't dispute them. So seeing SF players go to UFC anytime soon is not going to happen.

Some UFC fighter might go to SF after being cut, but they who are under contract with UFC won't jump ship because the money is so much worse @SF.

The only way we will see top fighters from both leagues fighting each other, is if Dana agrees to co-promote an "UFC vs SF" event.

This is actually possible since SF already started to "market" this idea (and I don't think they would do that without and greenlight from Zuffa).

And co-promoting wouldn't harm Zuffa since they own both companies.. Let's all hope.

RickMartelsArrogance - How do Champions clauses effect UFC signing SF guys when their contract is up?  I'm almost positive Jacare signed a 5 fight deal which would leave him w/ more one bout left, but the Champions clause is the question.


Apparently there is no champions clause...does Jake Shields ring a bell?

Zuffa can do what they want in that direction. They could have GSP fight on an SF show and pay him his UFC fee if they wanted.

Also, the money is not worth. Henderson, Diaz, Melendez, and many more are paid comparably or even better compared to their UFC counterparts, I think.

PickledSoylentQueen - Bisping would eat him for breakfast. Stay in Strikeforce, Jacare.

Bisping vs Jacare would be a really cool fight actually

Funny none of these guys complained until the UFC bought Strikeforce. Not that I disagree with him, but look what his comments already have you doing - posting potential UFC matchups.





That there is a smart feller.

Why do you think that? GSP is Diaz's UFC counterpart, I seriously doubt they get paid the same or even close.

 Id actually like to see that fight, not sure if even Bispings cardio could sustain running from Jacare all night.

GSP is an exception as one of if not the biggest star in the sport. Diaz's $175k for his last fight is more than Fitch, Koscheck, and Shields made in their last UFC fights, and all of them are ranked higher than Diaz is. Anderson only made $200k for his fight with Chael.

Melendez made $150k for his defense against Kawajiri, Edgar made only $102k for his against Maynard (although he got a $60k FOTN bonus on top of that).

Jim Miller made $30k for beating Shalorus; Aoki made $73k for beating Fancy Pants. Kamal made $7000 for getting KO'd, while Beerbohm made $10k for getting choked.

rosario02 -  LMFAO at "Bisping would eat him for breakfast"... If by that you mean he gets a limb torn off, then yes Phone Post

 Let's take a quick look at what happened to all the BBs Bisping fought.

Sinosic... smashed

McCarthy... destroyed

Schafer... appetiser

Kang... bingo'd

Miller... steak and kidney'd

Need I go on?


Good point. Those guys are all on the same level as Jacare.

You are leaving out ppv cuts, backroom bonuses, bigger sponsorship $, much more exposure.  The UFC is a much better option for your bank account.

This black belt had him finished. Imagine what Jacare would have done to him.
