FIGHT LIKE JACARE (story and photos by Gleidson © MMA SPORTS®)
Current Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Ronaldo Souza, widely known as “Jacare” is among the elite middleweights in the MMA world. With a very long list of world jiu-jitsu championships, 10 of his 13 MMA wins have come via submission. We caught up with him for a little schooling in jiu-jitsu.

Jacaré starts the position dominating both legs of his opponent with his hands (1 / 2). Then throws his right hand behind the neck of his opponent (3), advancing to his right side while still controlling his opponents neck, hips and legs, leaving him well glued to the floor (4/5/6/7). The position is completed by going to the north-south position, fitting an anaconda choke (8/9/10).
