Jacare Souza: If GSP wants to move to 185, ‘I will break his neck’
UFC middleweight contender Ronaldo Souza could’ve been the one fighting Luke Rockhold on short notice at UFC 199, but as fate would have it, minor knee surgery left him unable to accept the bout. Michael Bisping got the call-up instead, and the rest is history.
Jacare declared himself to be ready for competition, and is confident that his next fight will be a championship bout.
“St-Pierre never fought at middleweight. I don’t know what he’s doing here,” said Jacare. “To me, he’s a chicken. If I get him, I’ll break him in half. He’s retired and wants to fight for the title in a division he never fought before? He always ran away from Anderson (Silva), ran from fighting at 185, and now he wants the belt?”
“Look, I’ll give him this chance, and it’s going to be easy for me,” he continued. “I would pass on fighting for the belt only to fight him if he moves up. He’s a chicken. If he wants to move up, I would let Bisping for later, since I know I’m the next in line. If he wants to move up, I want him. I will break his neck.”
