Strikeforce results: 'Jacare' easily submits Ed Herman in the first round

Esther Lin, Strikeforce

Maybe the Strikeforce fighters will have a lot of success in the UFC. It took Ronaldo Souza all of 3:10 to get past UFC middleweight Ed Herman, stopping 'The Ultimate Fighter' (TUF) veteran with a kimura submission at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine in Oklahoma City, Ok. on Saturday night.

The round began with both fighters feeling each other out and Jacare getting the early takedown. As Jacare fended off an ankle lock attempt from Herman, he moved back into Herman's guard. Inadvertently, Herman landed an illegal upkick, but the referee strangely stood them up afterward after warning Herman of the foul.

The Brazilian didn't let it stop him as he used a front kick to the face and right hook combo to stun and back Herman up. A follow-up double leg scoop sent Herman to the mat with Jacare in side control. From there it was the beginning of the end as Jacare locked up the kimura to get the tap.

Souza moves to 17-3-1 in professional MMA and 7-1 in Strikeforce.
