The UFC got it right with this rumble. “Jacare” and Carmont are two of the top 185ers out there, but the divisional strap is tied up for the next eight months based on champion Chris Weidman’s defense against Anderson Silva in late December and the winner’s likelihood of facing Vitor Belfort shortly thereafter. As such, Souza and Carmont need to clash as a means of determining the NEXT contender. At first glance, it seems Souza should have the advantage based on his BJJ brilliance in comparison to Carmont’s love of taking opponents down and working from above.
