Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza Accepts Match Up Against Yushin Okami Offered By The UFC

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza formally accepted a fight against Yushin Okami today, brought up earlier this month by the UFC, leaving the ball firmly in the court of the man they call “Thunder”.

Souza’a manager Gilberto Faria told MMAFighting.com that he called UFC matchmaker Joe Silva to inform him that they liked the idea and would accept the fight. He also stated:

“It is up to them now to make that happen.”

Souza is coming off an ultra-impressive first round submission win over top prospect, Chris Camozzi who had previously won four in a row inside the octagon. That followed an equally dominant first round win over Ed Herman in his last fight under the Strikeforce banner.
