So he tells Ariel Helwani in a post-fight interview:

"In the first round, he got me, he knocked me down but I've been training so hard and so well so I could come back and do what I got to do. In the second round he did very well holding up but in the third round (I) finished what (I) was planning for. Yeah (he was tired), but the way I got his back there was no way I could lose that position. ... I have no idea who (is going to be next), it's up to Strikeforce, but I hope it happens fast. I want to fight right away."

Grappling sensation Ronaldo Souza is ready to get right back in the cage fresh on the heels of his third round submission victory over Robbie Lawler in the co-main event of Strikeforce: "Diaz vs. Cyborg" on Jan. 29 in San Jose. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist survived an early onslaught from his "Ruthless" opponent by way of his apparently superior training and preparation. "Jacare," who is also a Judo black belt, was simply too proficient in dragging Lawler to the mat, which led to the UFC veteran gassing out and failing to do what the Wu-Tang Clan taught us we always should -- protect ya neck. Now Souza wants to get back in the cage as soon as possible and Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker says he'll be back in there in the next two or three months and an announcement is likely coming next week as to who his opponent will be. He also said Jason Miller is a possibility. Anyone want to see a third fight against "Mayhem?" Or do you have someone better in mind? Let's hear it, Maniacs.
