This first-round submission earned Jacare Performance of the Night at UFC 208

Of the 10 preliminary and main card fights at UFC 208, just one didn't go the distance.

While the co-main events saw Germaine de Randamie and Anderson Silva handed unanimous decision victories, Performance of the Night honours went to Silva's compatriot Ronaldo 'Jacare' Souza for the evening's sole submission win.

It is the second time in a row Jacare has taken that particular award, following his TKO victory over Vitor Belfort at UFC 198 nine months ago.

And few could have asked for much more from the Brazilian as he continues to work his way back from a maiden UFC defeat to Yoel Romero in December 2015.

After seeing a rematch with Luke Rockhold cancelled late last year, Jacare took extreme measures to earn himself his first fight since that win over Belfort.

It worked, with the 37-year-old handed a meeting with 13th-ranked Tim Boetsch, who was coming off a two-fight win streak.

The American was no match for Jacare, however, with the number three-ranked middleweight taking just three minutes and 41 seconds to earn a victory via kimura.

And after the win, he made it very clear what he wants to happen next.
