Souza vs. Carmont Wiki Update Wiki

Decorated Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza comes into the fight with Tristar Gym standout Francis Carmont the heavy favorite. With a 4" reach advantage (9th ranked) Carmont is on an impressive eleven fight win streak with six of those wins coming in the UFC. Former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Souza (3rd ranked) knows how to win in big fights, but will he underestimate the larger fighter who hasn't been beaten since 2008?
