Constantinos Philippou has had a nice five-fight run in the UFC. But even he knows that it's time for a step up in competition. Enter Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

I'm with you on that, amigo! I'm thinking Souza gets the sub though.

I'm suddenly more confident in my prediction: Souza 1st rd sub.

I'm still far from sold on Costa. He's beaten a bunch of middle of the pack guys, without dominating any of them really. Yeah, he knocked out Hamman but 4 of Hamman's 5 losses were KOs. Also, let's not forget that Boetsch won the first rd against Philipou before an eye poke turned the tide.

Souza, on the other hand, has run through everyone not named Luke Rockhold in recent memory. He'll be too much too soon.

He certainly should be. I know everybody always says "well this guy is on a whole other level", well when it comes to Jacare's ground game he is on a whole other planet, possibly a whole other solar system. Maia is a beast on the ground too, and I know the two have competed against each other 3 times I believe in BJJ competitions with Souza winning twice and I believe one of them by sub. If the 2 fought in MMA I bet even Maia would be like "Fuck dude, I wanna keep this standing". I'd put Jacare in the top 3 best ground games in MMA. For no reason should any human being on the planet be like "I'm not in the least bit worried about his ground game". Please Philippou, let him take you down and see how quickly you have a change of heart.
