Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza not in UFC anytime soon

In Kevin Iole’s mailbag column for Yahoo! Sports this week, he addresses the question of whether or not we’ll be seeing Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the UFC anytime soon and got an answer straight from Dana White:

“We talked to his people and they asked for crazy money. They were out of their minds, so we forgot about him.” He’s definitely not going to be in “The Ultimate Fighter 7”.

Too bad. “Jacare” is a real middleweight talent that could certainly add some depth to their division right now.

    I think Dana has learned the old saying…”Fool me once…shame on you…Fool me twice…shame on me”

    He will not get CroCopped again.

    I would’ve sworn some sites were reported Jacare was signed by the UFC last year. Oh well. He’d be awesome in the future DREAM MW GP.

    They need middleweight contenders so I think they should pay the man and sign him. You need to spend money to make money, I know the UFC doesn’t need him but it would be a great addition.

    Zane…while I agree you spend money to make money…you don’t go out and sign a dude that’s largely unproven to a huge sum of money(unless you are an exception to the rule like lesnar)…the casual fan has no idea of who he is so Dana made a smart decision IMO.

    There was a rumor he was going to be on TUF 7, that never panned out. He is legit, interesting to see what org he pops up in.

    Jacare has a weak beard. Macaco punched him in the forehead and the dude went out.

    Unproven? He’s 7-1. The loss to macaco was his first fight and macaco’s like 20th.
    Are they “name” wins? No, but it’s certainly not the worst record that’s ever entered the UFC.
    The only legitimate argument is that 90% of the people who know who Jacare is already watch UFC. It’s like signing Marcelo or Roger; unless the UFC’s ppv setup overseas and down south would really benefit it just doesn’t make much sense to pay a lot to promote any of those guys in the states. They are all worth the money, but only in a worldwide market.

    Jacare would eat half of the UFC alive. He is half alligator, he’s a beast.

    O DANA NÃO DÁ CHANCE AO JACA, PQ ELE SABE QUE + UM CAMPEÃO DO UFC PERDERIA, COMO ACONTECEU NOS PESOS PESADOS, PQ TANTO O JACARÉ, TANTO O PAULÃO FILHO, AMBOS DA MESMA CATEGORIA DO ANDERSON SILVA, VENCERIAM FACILMENTE O ANDERSON, ISSO SEM NENHUMA DÚVIDA E NO 1ª ROUD…
