Dana White Says Jacare Is Still One Fight Away From A Title Shot

Following Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza’s dominant performance over Gegard Mousasi at UFC Fight Night 50 this past Friday, many fans were calling for a title shot for Jacare.

UFC President Dana White doesn’t think Jacare is there yet.

“You can say [Souza] is next in line for a title. Somebody’s already next in line for the title, so obviously Jacare looked incredible tonight, he put on a great performance and I’m sure he’ll fight again before we talk about title shots.”

“He looked very impressive tonight. You know, I’m a huge Mousasi fan, and he picked him apart and wore him out. He looked fantastic tonight. And we talk about title shots, there’s a title fight that’s going to happen first. So it depends on when this thing happens, what goes down, what happens with Chris Weidman. It’s tough to say, yeah he’s getting a title shot when there’s already a title shot in line.”

“Timing is everything. There is a title fight. There’s a title fight lined up, it’s still a ways away, so…yeah.”

Do you agree with Dana White?
