UFC veteran Ed Herman made a Strikeforce appearance tonight (Sat., Jan. 12, 2013) on Showtime, taking on Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. And it didn't last long.

When Ed Herman accepted a catch-weight (194 pounds) bout with former Strikeforce 185-pound champion, Ronaldo Souza, "Short Fuse" became the first and only Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter to participate in a one-off, cross-promotional bout.

Not too many of Herman's peers saw the upside in competing in a "lesser" organization against a very dangerous Brazilian jiu-jitsu stylist. And now The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 runner up knows the reason for the widespread reluctance.

"Jacare" and Herman exchanged punches early at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla., with the Brazilian getting the better of the exchanges. He soon scored a takedown and began to unleash some ground and pound. Herman responded with several illegal upkicks, which forced the referee to call for a break in the action.

Upon the restart, Souza nailed Herman with a punch, backed him up to the fence, picked him up and dumped him on the mat. At this point it was academic: "Jacare" attacked Herman's arm almost immediately, twisting it awkwardly behind his back to force a tapout via submission (kimura).

Alligator chomp!
