Derek Brunson has been calling for a big fight, and apparently, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza has accepted a fight with Brunson and is waiting for Brunson to accept.
Jacare said the following on Twitter:
UFC offered me Derek Brunson on February 3 at UFC FN 125 in Belém Pará Brazil, I ALREADY ACCEPTED THE FIGHT IN BELÉM DO PARÁ BRASIL, now it’s with Derek Brunson, I hope you do not make excuses about the place and date of the event.

Jacare has not fought since April when he lost by 2nd round TKO to Robert Whittaker. Prior to that loss, the BJJ legend was on a two-fight winning streak. He has won 10 out of his last 12 fights. Brunson is on a two-fight winning streak. He has first-round knockouts of Daniel Kelly and Lyoto Machida in back to back fights. Brunson is 9-3 in the UFC.
If Brunson accepts the fight, the two will fight at UFC Fight Night 125 on February 3rd in Belem, Brazil.
