BJJ Wiz Jacare Leaving DREAM?


Even though he lost the DREAM middleweight tournament by being brutally knocked out (seen above), Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza is one of DREAM’s biggest attractions.  While he was believed to rematch Jason “Mayhem” Miller for the middleweight belt which Gegard Mousasi vacated, according to World of MMA, Ed Soares, a very well-connected manager in MMA, says Jacare might be leaving the Japanese organization:

Paulo Filho’s manager, Ed Soares, who oversee’s other top Brazilian fighters such as current UFC champs Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida along with the Nogueria brothers, recently appeared on the World of MMA show and said, “I’ve heard rumors that he[Paulo Filho] might be fighting for a belt in DREAM.  I heard some rumors that Jacare may not be in DREAM anymore.”

With Filho’s recent victory against Melvin Manhoef being an exciting fight, it appears that he is back to form and a fight with Miller would be interesting.  Still, the big question is, where would Jacare go if he left DREAM?
