And in case you’re trying to come up with a reason to clear your schedule and be in front of your television for this fight, you don’t have to look back too far for a reminder as to why the fighter commonly known as “Jacare” makes for appointment viewing.
The last we saw of “Jacare” was at UFC 230, when he took on former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Under the bright lights of New York’s Madison Square Garden, the duo threw down in an absolute war.
And Weidman seemed well on his way to winning this battle in the third round … until he wasn’t. Souza scored a staggering knockout to take the fight, and the duo took home much-deserved Fight of the Night bonuses.
