Jacare Souza forgoes free agency and signs a new contract with the UFC

Jacare’s free agent run turned out to be non-existent.

Ronaldo Souza was heading into tomorrow night at UFC on FOX 24 against Robert Whittaker on the last fight of his UFC commitment. There’s been a lot of consideration as to if he might test the free-agent market. He has a solid relationship with Scott Coker who is with Bellator, and people were dreaming about a potential reunion.  It’s not going to happen though, as Jacare signed an eight-fight extension with the UFC.

He took to Instagram to post the news and had an enormous smile on his face. Congratulations to Jacare Souza for signing an extension and staying in the UFC. He will be able to chase his dream of wearing the UFC gold.  He fights tomorrow night on FOX against Robert Whittaker in what should be an incredible contest.

Ronaldo Souza (24-4) has won nine of his last ten entering tomorrow night’s fight.  He’s known for being one of the premier submission artists on the planet.
