Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, who will face Luke Rockhold this Saturday night, discusses his opponent, as well as his aspirations as a native to fight in his home country of Brazil. Though Souza feels Rockhold deserves the title shot, he expects his experience to lead him to victory over the AKA product.
"Whoever they put in front of me I'm going to be ready. Luke Rockhold is a great guy and good fighter. He has all the reason to be there to fight me. So, I am just going to do my job and go in there and do my thing. I have more experience than him, so I want to use that as an advantage. I know he's a good fighter - a good stand-up guy, a good grappling guy, and good takedowns, so I am going to use my experience to go in there and get the victory."
