Former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza stated he wanted either Vitor Belfort or Luke Rockhold earlier this month after earning a submission victory in his UFC debut.

However, upon hearing that the UFC wants to pair Souza with Yushin Okami, the Brazilian seem content with that fight, as well.

Souza’s manager, Gilberto Faria, told MMAFighting.com that “It is up to (the UFC) now to make that happen.”

Okami (29-7) is a former No. 1 contender to the UFC middleweight title. Souza (18-3) earned another impressive submission victory when he choked out Chris Camozzi in Brazil.
