Jacare Souza spoke last night following his win over Francis Carmont at UFC Fight Night 36. Check out the highlights:
On his plan to undergo surgery for his elbow injury: "I'm going to have to clean my arm out of these [bone] fragments."
On whether the injury affected the fight: "I had no difficulty because of the injury. I mentioned that I had a lot of [bone] fragments in my left arm, and some people said that I shouldn't fight. I asked the UFC to trust me; I asked my physicians if I could fight, and they told me that I had a good chance of fighting, so that's what I believed in."
On a potential fight with Luke Rockhold: "Yeah, it's OK. If the UFC thinks that's what's good, that's it. When I think about Belfort hitting him, that's what happens. If you come to Brazil, we will hit you. I think he's way below in the rankings, but if the UFC thinks that has to be done, I'll do it. I'll prove I'm better than he is."
