#1 Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza vs. Derek Brunson
Jacare knocked out Brunson in a matter of seconds in their first encounter back in 2012.
The Brazilian grappling phenom repeated the performance in 2018, destroying Brunson with a vicious Headkick and follow-up strikes. Both fighters started out cautious with Jacare using the jab to gauge distance.
Brunson tried to turn the heat on, however, telegraphed his combinations with his feet, and ended up walking right into a picture-perfect Headkick. Jacare ended the fight with a few punches on the mat, and reestablished himself as one of the 185-pound division’s elite.
