Jacare Souza: I want to fight 'chicken' Georges St-Pierre and break his neck

It's been a few months since I checked the unified rules of mixed martial arts (MMA), but I'm pretty sure "broken neck" will, at the very minimum, get you a point deduction.

But that hasn't seemed to deter top-ranked Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Ronaldo Souza, who probably read a bunch of articles on (his favorite site) about Georges St-Pierre coming back to combat sports for a shot at 185-pound kingpin Michael Bisping.

And according to his conversation with MMA Fighting, that shit won't fly 'round these parts.

"St-Pierre never fought at middleweight. I don't know what he's doing here. To me, he's a chicken. If I get him, I'll break him in half. He's retired and wants to fight for the title in a division he never fought before? He always ran away from Anderson (Silva), ran from fighting at 185, and now he wants the belt? Look, I'll give him this chance, and it's going to be easy for me. I would pass on fighting for the belt only to fight him if he moves up. He's a chicken. If he wants to move up, I would let Bisping for later, since I know I'm the next in line. If he wants to move up, I want him. I will break his neck."

The Brazilian is ranked No. 3 at middleweight behind ex-champs Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold.

While St-Pierre has been out of action for nearly three years to recharge his batteries, Souza turned down a crack at the 185-pound crown -- which ultimately went to Bisping -- to have surgery on his ailing knee. "Jacare" is expected to return by the end of the summer.

Protect ya' neck.
