Ronaldo Jacare Souza
The Brazilian fighter is 40 years old. Now his affairs are not going well. Ronaldo lost 3 of the last 4 fights.

Hall vs Souza Prediction
Fighters of the same height, but in the sweep of the arms, Uriah has a huge advantage. The American is hard at work, has a knockout punch and tremendous physical strength. In the fight, he stands out only with good protection against takedowns, which is about 70%.
The Brazilian is also physically strong, has a powerful blow, but he is more equipped than Hall. Souza, first of all, is a dangerous jitser. He gained many wins with the help of tricks. But in recent years, Souza has forgotten a little about her wrestling skills and is more focused on the kick. And in the rack, the Brazilian is also dangerous.
Take a look at the statistics. Uriah Hall inflicts more hits on average per minute of battle and his accuracy is higher. But in defense, he is already working better than Souza. An important aspect in this battle will be the hold. The American has problems with this. He also lost ahead of schedule, but by knockouts he lost a very long time. Blows the Brazilian withstands without problems.
We don’t look forward to fighting. But if it does, it is only at the initiative of Ronaldo Souza. But we doubt that he will be able to translate Hall and keep him on canvas. And we expect to see a tight fight in the rack, where Ronaldo will have an advantage. Perhaps he will be able to complete the battle ahead of schedule.
