If Jacare is as smart as I believe him to be, he'll hang up the gloves. The humerus doesn't heal easily, especially at his age.

Also, is the left hook becoming the most powerful tool in MMA? We've seen multiple championships decided by it in the last two years.

Because of how people follow past the feet with power shots lead hooks will always be one of the biggest shots in boxing or MMA. If you lean into your power in a closed stance you lose that periphery and can get clipped bad. Watch the main event in slow-no, Chandler bombs Oliviera’s body in close, but gets caught bringing his hand back to his face and he completely loses sight of the low starting hook because his own return was blocking it.
