With a near six-year gap since their first fight, Jacare Souza repeated history as he scored another first-round knockout finish over Derek Brunson.

After a tentative three and half minutes with both men respecting their opponent’s power, Jacare Souza opened up with a big right head kick that stumbled Brunson to the cage. Slowly stalking his prey after the definitive strike, Jacare landed a small flurry of punches on Brunson leaving Dan Miragliotta no choice but to step in and put the Brazilian back into the win column.
