Rio de Janeiro’s Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza scored his second Octagon victory in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night at Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Wednesday night, knocking out longtime middleweight contender Yushin Okami in the first round and making a strong case for his inclusion in the 185-pound title picture.

A former Strikeforce champion, Souza went on the attack early, with a right hand momentarily stunning Okami. Souza unloaded on the Japanese contender, but Okami survived the assault and even went on to stuff a Jacare takedown attempt. Midway through the round though, the right landed again and Okami hit the deck hard. This time there would be no reprieve, with the follow-up barrage forcing referee Leon Roberts to intervene 2:47 into the opening frame.

With the win, Souza improves to 19-3 with 1 NC; Okami falls to 30-8.
