Quick Quote: "Feijao" Cavalcante says he was "doing fine" before the H-Bomb landedPosted on March 10, 2011, 11:36 PM by Joey Santosus
"That punch was what went wrong, that’s to begin with. I was doing fine on the bout. I was taken down unnecessarily, and it’s pretty hard to take me down. He set a good game plan and fought well. He’s a clever guy, he knows how to fight, he’s experienced, and I thought my good conditioning would make a difference, and I was feeling fine, and I’d move forwards on the fourth round, but he’s dangerous."
"Each fight is unique, you are only exposed if you’re up there, it’s 50-50. There’s no favoritism, favoritism ends in two seconds, when a fist matched a chin. I believe I can beat him and we’ll meet each other soon, you can bet on it. - For complete interview visit Tatame.com
Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante looks back on his loss to Dan Henderson last Saturday at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Though he appeared to have Henderson in trouble early-on, landing a big right hand that sent him tumbling to the floor, "Hendo" was able to regain his composure and eventually find a home for his own right, aptly known as the "H-Bomb," which left the Brazilian face down on the mat. "Feijao" credits the veteran's experience and cleverness for the victory, but assures that they will meet again.
