Jacare Souza: 'I have the style to beat anyone, including UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman'
"I have the perfect style to beat anyone, including Chris Weidman. Many people don't believe in my potential yet, but that's how I like it. I still have much to prove, I've fought only twice in the UFC, but I can guarantee you that I'm ready for any challenge to prove I have what it takes to get the title.(Francis Carmont) is a well-rounded fighter. He started his career in the striking area but has been taking down his opponents recently, doing a great job with his wrestling and jiu-jitsu. It's a complicated fighter to set up a strategy, but that's the type of challenge I like to fight."

TUF 20: New UFC strawweight fighters getting paid up to $40k prior to Octagon debut
By now, most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans have heard of the newest weight class in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). A women's strawweight division has been created with the acquisition of 11 fighters from Invicta FC's entirely female roster. The fighters will compete on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 for the chance at being the first 115-pound champion in company history (details here). Financial information has emerged in the wake of promotion president Dana White's announcement and quite frankly, the women are coming out of the deal on top. During Wednesday's late edition of Fox Sports Live, it was revealed that fighters will be paid at least $32,000 each prior to stepping foot inside the Octagon. Invicta's current champ Carla Esparza is the exception, as she will nab a cool $40k herself before ever throwing a punch.
