Betting Odds: Uriah Hall (+105) vs. Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza (-125)
There are few fights at middleweight that could so perfectly pit a stand-up specialist against a submission expert, although it’s now been more than three years since Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt (fourth degree) Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza last tapped out a foe.
Tim Boetsch was the unlucky recipient of said Kimura in February 2017, and Jacare’s record of two wins—both by knockout—in six appearances since then hints at a change in fortunes and style.
Hall—a BJJ blue belt—has never suffered a submission loss in his 24-fight career, and he hopes to add a significant notch to his belt with a victory over Souza.
Former middleweight champ Robert Whittaker is the only fighter to knock Jacare out in his 34 fights (eight losses), though striking sensation Hall will surely hope to change that.
