Ronald “Jacare” Souza may have lost out on a main event opportunity after Luke Rockhold suffered an injury, thus cancelling their UFC Fight Night 101 bout.
However, Souza now has his eyes set on UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bipsing, whom “Jacare” claims is running away from him.
Souza posted a video via his official Instagram, but the main takeaway from the video was this statement from the middleweight star.
"Stop running from me, Bisping," Souza said (transcript provided by MMA Fighting). "It’s time to face a real contender. Real champion fight a real contender. You need to show to the world that you can be a real champion. I’m next. You wanna fight me."
Here is the Instagram video that Souza posted:
Pare de correr de mim @mikebisping , essa é a hora de você lutar com o verdadeiro desafiante porque o campeão de verdade luta com o desafiante de verdade . Eu sou o próximo e você vai ter que lutar comigo . @ufc @danawhite @canalcombate @ufcbrasil @reebokbrasil @reebok @graciemag_br @graciemagazine @lucianoandrade_123 @sportv
