Training partner of Anderson Silva, Ronaldo Jacare is more than confident that the upcoming rematch between Silva and Sonnen will be a completely different fight. The story of the last fight was Sonnen’s take-downs that had him submitted late in the fifth to lose the likely decision. According to the former Strikeforce champ, those take-downs will not take place this time around.

“Anderson has a black belt level at Jiu Jitsu. When he puts the gi on he does great. He can attack and defend himself well with no gi and, fighting MMA. I believe that next time he won’t let Sonnen take him down. He has excellent takedown defense. Sonnen won’t even touch him. I believe that if he’s in good shape no one can beat him, especially Sonnen”, said Jacare.
