One of the most decorated BJJ specialist, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza has his UFC run come to an end. During his prime, he was one of the most feared fighter in MMA. Outside of the UFC, he had a lot of accomplishments but sadly timing was not in his favor. His last loss was brutal, his opponent broke his arm.

There was a time where Souza was in talks of a title shot, but the UFC never granted him even once. He was on a 5-fight win streak but sadly fell short against Yoel Romero, where he then fell down the rankings once more. After that, father time just came knocking on his door.

Ronaldo Souza may have wins but his losses were a lot that the UFC had no choice but to cut him out. In his last few fights, he just lacked athleticism to compete with the young hungry lions. That is just the way of the sport, they call it a young man’s game. Although there are some exceptional fighters that competed at the highest level despite being old.

Who knows, Souza may end up in another promotion like Bellator. Yoel Romero certainly moved there after getting cut from the UFC. It is kinda sad to see old fighters still fight despite out of their prime but they do it in order to survive.
