I love the sound of this fight.

Does Jacare deserve a title shot with a win? Maybe fight the winner of Machida/Mousasi first?

I'm afraid Carmont is going to get taken out quickly.

Awesome fight.

Anyone gonna question whether Carmont deserves this fight bring on your banter cause whether you like it or not Carmonts on the joint third biggest win streak in the UFC atm.

1. GSP
2. Jones
3. Carmont, Barao, Weidman, Brown

Lorenz Larkin beat Carmont. That decision was much worse then GSP/Hendricks, Jones/Gus, Machida/Davis, Melendez/Henderson, etc.,. He's technically on a winning streak, but anyone realistically playing attention knows he shouldn't be. This is an unwarranted step up for him, but with his style, it could be decent enough though I think Jacare will demonstrate just how much Carmont really deserved this fight. His performance against Philippou won;t be repeated against this opponent.

I think both men are deserving of high status.

As one of the few Carmont fans, I hope he can find a way to pull this off. I think he is better than some of his performances would have us believe. If Carmont fires on all cylinders, I think everyone will realize that in this fight.

I'm excited for this one

Souza runs through him. I was very surprised with how well Carmont looked in his last fight. IMO Carmont was gifted decision wins over Lawlor and Larkin though. Souza has looked unstoppable in his last 4 fights. I'd rather see him fight someone like Belfort, Mousasi (A rematch over 5 years in the making) or Machida. Carmont just feels like padding on his record to me. I guess we'll see. This is MMA after all.

Nice knowing you Carmont.
He's got a shot as he's one of the biggest guys in the division with some excellent grappling but I don't know if he's going to be able to hang in the upper echelon at MW
I guess we'll find out!

WAR JACARE!

Love to see him back in action. Was hoping for a bigger name but Carmont is on six fight streak and deserves to prove himself against a contender. Jacare by KO or Sub allday.

As much as I want Machida to KO Mousasi id love Mousasi to win and rematch Jacare after that fluke upkick so Jacare can give him a proper spanking.
