After securing a huge win over Chris Weidman at UFC 230, Ronaldo Jacare Souza is willing to wait to get his Middleweight championship shot.
In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Souza revealed the same and said that he does not want to be a backup plan for anyone.
“I’m a plan A, man. I will fight for the belt. I want to wait for my chance. I’m a plan A, I will wait for my turn,” he said.
He also went on to note that he has already made enough money this year and reflected on the fights that he recently had.
“I’ve made a lot of money this year. I fought three times, I won three bonuses. I have one performance bonus and two fights of the night, I knocked my last opponent out. I’ve made plenty of money, I can stay some time without fighting. Romero defeats me in a robbery and fights for the belt. Gastelum wins a split decision, a close fight — and I thought I should have won — and he fights for the belt. If Chris Weidman had beat me, he would have fought for the belt, and I’m the No. 5 in the rankings. I knocked him out. Why am I not going to fight for the belt? Why? For what reason?,” he said.
