- Ronaldo Jacare Souza spoke about his victory at UFC Fight Night 28. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting Anyone But Anderson Silva: "Anderson is someone I don't want to fight," Souza said. "He's someone who's in my camp; he's my friend. He helps me, and I help him. So I wouldn't be a good character if I said I wanted to fight him. But, I'm a UFC fighter, and I hope the UFC never gives us this fight, but I'm ready to face anyone in the world in my weight class, and also at 205."
On His UFC Run So Far: "I've not complained, because I've done two very quick fights," he said. "The UFC already gave me very strong opponents, and I like this opponent very much. And I tell you, I'm ready for anyone. I'm not going to ask for any opponents. I'm going to go to camp and train and be ready to face any opponent, because I'm an employee who loves to work."
On Hurting His Foot: "I think it was when I gave him a front kick," Souza said. "I think it hit his elbow and it hurt my toe, and it really hurt a lot. But I focused, I forgot the pain, and I was able to do a great fight."
