Jack Hermansson is definitely the talk of the town as far as UFC middleweights go with his hugely impressive back-to-back wins over David Branch and now Ronaldo Souza.

Hermansson came into his bout against “Jacare” as a late-notice replacement for the injured Yoel Romero on the UFC Fight Night 150 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida this past weekend. Despite being the betting underdog, the Swedish-born, Norwegian-based fighter defied the odds by putting on the best performance of his nine-fight UFC career by taking out a perennial contender in grappling ace Souza.

UFC color commentator Joe Rogan took to his Instagram account to hail the Swede’s performance stating that he was “seriously impressed” given the short turnaround and the quality of his opponent.

“I was seriously impressed with [Jack Hermansson’s] fight with [Ronaldo Souza] last night. He came into the fight as an underdog against a man who in unquestionably one of the best 185lbs fighters on earth and earned a hard fought victory. He even almost caught the multiple time BJJ champion in his patented arm in guillotine. Submitting the very talented David Branch and then a month later beating Jacare is an amazing accomplishment. The already insanely packed middleweight division has a new star!”
