“Jacare” Re-Signs With Forza LLC, UFC Bound

Jacare has confirmed that former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza has re-signed with Forza LLC, a subsidiary of  Zuffa LLC. “Jacare” has inked a five-fight deal.

Often considered one of the greatest Brazilian jiu jitsu players on the planet, the former champion will meet UFC middleweight Ed Herman on January 12 at Strikeforce’s final event. He will then transfer over to the octagon with much of the San Jose-based promotion’s roster.

After dropping the middleweight title to Luke Rockhold in 2011, Souza went undefeated in 2012. The Brazilian took stoppage wins over eventual TUF cast member Bristol Marunde and recent UFC acquisition Derek Brunson.
