Brazilian UFC fighter and mixed martial artist, Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza holidays with his family at the legendary Hard Rock Hotel Maldives.
Ronaldo Souza, who is known in the fighting industry as “Jacaré” (alligator in Portuguese) is one of the best grappling competitors of his generation, as well as a mix martial artist (MMA Fighter).
