Spreading The Coronavirus one Corona at a Time
- Feb 12, 2015
One of the toughest middleweights in the game, “Jacare,” was burned out. A jiu-jitsu legend who has never had the opportunity to challenge for a UFC belt, the Brazilian considered calling it quits. He did not train for months. And when he decided to finally go back to the gym and put gloves on, it was only to help his friend Rodolfo Vieira, who was preparing for his UFC debut, and he broke down in tears.
“Three months ago, I was crying on my way to the gym, tears would come out of my eyes and I didn’t know why,” Souza told MMA Fighting. “‘What am I doing, man? I’ll stop fighting, I don’t want this for my life.’”
