I recall Jacare clearly winning the first round, and hurting him enough in the second round to take it. Rockhold was throwing a lot, but landing little of significance. There must have been a third round I gave Jacare, too, but I don't recall which. I also didn't think that the Jacare/Kennedy fight was particularly close, and I thought it was ridiculous that Kennedy was somewhat protesting the decision.
That post probably did come across as more critical than I intended, though. I do think he is very good, but I don't see him being the next big thing. I'm not sure I'd pick him over a guy like Bisping at the moment.
