Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza-Derek Brunson Planned For August Strikeforce Card

A key middleweight contest between former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Derek Brunson is in the works for the August 18 Strikeforce card.

MMA Weekly recently confirmed news of the impending bout.

The card is set to feature Ronda Rousey defending her women’s title against Sarah Kaufman from San Diego, California. The main card will be shown live on Showtime.

Souza defeated Bristol Marunde in his latest fight after Brunson pulled out of the planned bout.

Since that time, Brunson has had surgery to correct his eyesight issue that forced him out, and also lost a decision to Kendall Grove.
