Strikeforce: Houston Results - Jacare Souza Wins Middleweight Title

In the middleweight title fight between "Jacare" Souza and Tim Kennedy it was more or less five straight rounds of the two men standing and trading punches.

Souza, a jiu jitsu legend, used much improved striking to continually land the harder shots and force Kennedy to not fight from a comfortable distance. Kennedy had his moments but for the most part it was consistent that Souza was winning the rounds. SB Nation scored the bout 49-46 for Feijao.

The judges scorecards were 49-46 and two cards reading 48-47 all for Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.
