Jacare Souza Has Knee Surgery, Looks for September UFC Return

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza had successful surgery on an injured knee last Wednesday, according to a report from “UFC Tonight.”

The fighter went under the knife to repair a partially torn meniscus, the fighter’s manager told the FOX Sports 1 program. Jacare injured the unspecified knee in his fight with Chris Camozzi at UFC on FOX 15 in April.

Jacare-Souza-024-SF-750x370At a record of 22-3, 1 NC, Souza has been running through much of what’s been handed to him in the middleweight division. Stretching back to his days fighting in Strikeforce, Jacare has won eight in a row.

Upon his return, the fighter’s manager told the program that he wants either a title shot or a rematch with Luke Rockhold in September. Souza’s last loss came to Rockhold, a fight that cost him the Strikeforce middleweight title in September of 2011.
