In the main event, surging light-heavyweight contender Jan Blachowicz looked to pick up his second straight KO. Standing in his way was middleweight pioneer Ronaldo ‘Jacare‘ Souza. The jiu-jitsu ace, ‘Jacare‘, attempted 5 takedowns against his opponent over the duration of the contest, none of which were landed.
