Ronaldo Souza Dos Santos, a.k.a. “Jacare”, is one of the top grapplers in the world. He has been competing in Brazilian JuJitsu and Submission Wrestling tournaments since his teens. He has won the BJJ World Championships many times, in both his weight division and the open weight division. Although spending the majority of his athletic career on the mat grappling, he has recently fought in a few MMA events. His professional mixed martial arts record as of 12/07/06 is 3 wins 1 loss and 0 draws.
His nickname is portuguese for alligator. The name comes from the symbol for the academy where he trains. He received the name because he spent all of his time at the school training.
“The Alligator” is also know for the unique victory dance he does after each win. You will see this at the end of the following video. He drops to the mat belly down and moves across the floor like an alligator.
