The black belt in judo and Bjj and former Strikeforce Mw champion Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza entered this fight with a professional mma record of 21-3-0 (81% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.3 middleweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Chris Weidman). He suffered his last defeat in 2011 when he faced Luke Rockhold (=Rockhold vs Jacare), since then he has won seven consecutive bouts beating Gegard Mousasi in his last fight (=Jacare vs Mousasi 2).
His opponent, Chris Camozzi (who replaces Yoel Romero), has a record of 20-9-0 (60% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.36 in the same weight class. He lost four consecutive fights between 2013 and 2014 so he was released by the Ultimate Fighting Championship but he came back to win beating Jeremy Kimball and Wes Swofford.
