The midddleweight tournament at DREAM featured two of the most unexpected finishes that I have ever watched in fighting. First, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza completes a lightning-quick armbar submission on Zelg Galesic:
Did you have to rewind to catch it? Me too. Galesic learned quickly that you cannot leave an arm hanging out, not even a little bit, around Jacare. Of course, Jacare then learned very quickly that you cannot leave your chin hanging out, not even a little, around Gegard Mousasi.
It's a little tough to see, but yes, that's an upkick that just knocked Jacare out cold. My colleague, Steve Cofield, mentioned that DREAM's stacked middleweight division could help the UFC in giving Anderson Silva enough of a challenge that he would stick around. I agree with him, and would love to see Silva take on either Jacare or Mousasi.
