"Jacaré’s fight will be for the title, at May 26th. The expectations are good and we’re ready to war", said Distak, Still without official confirmation, Distak revealed that the opponent might be one of Jacare’s last opponents. "We’re still waiting for the confirmation and Dream’s answer, but the rumors say that will be against Jason Miller, but it’s not 100% confirmed yet", told the coach, revealing that Ronaldo's opponent might be the same one he defeated at Dream 4, by unnanimous decision.
I'd like to reserve judgment on this until we see how Miller looks against Kala Hose this weekend, but as it stands, I don't see the rematch going any different from the first bout. I do think it's great that DREAM is wasting no time in reassigning Mousasi's title though.
