Last Saturday, top Brazilian middleweight contender Ronaldo Souza fought Poland’s Jan Blachowicz at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In a five-round back and forth action, Souza lost via split decision in the main event of UFC Fight Night 164.
The fight was not a very pleasant one as there was very little action through five rounds. The fans even booed the fighters. As the results were announced Souza wasn’t pleased with the decision.
He took to Instagram to address his loss at UFC Fight Night 164.
