‘Jacare’ Souza wants test at 205: 'I've always had this idea'
Weight difference is not a problem for Ronaldo Souza. The two-time black belt absolute world champion in jiu-jitsu has fought guys who weighed more than 30 pounds than him, and "Jacare" eyes more challenges in his MMA career. The former Strikeforce middleweight champion mauled Yushin Okami last Wednesday at UFC Fight Night 28 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and told MMA Fighting he would move up to light heavyweight to test himself. "That would give me more opportunities to work," Souza said. "I’m not a big guy for 205, but I’m really strong and would do great fights in this division as well. I've always had this idea, I just never had the opportunity to show how ready I was for this challenge.
