Strikeforce Results: Dan Henderson's "H-Bomb" beats Feijao CavalcantePosted on March 5, 2011, 11:34 PM by Anton Gurevich
Forty year old Dan Henderson became the Champion for the first time since 2007, defeating Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante via TKO in the third round.
Despite the result, it was Feijao who had a better start. The Brazilian rocked Henderson with a powerful right hand, but the veteran managed to quickly regain composure, responding with an excellent takedown. From there, Henderson was in full control, by pushing Feijao back to the fence with well-timed striking and trademark takedowns.
Henderson unleashed the world-famous H-Bomb in the third round, shaving the chin of Feijao. The Champion fell right on his face, as Hendo started to land heavy punches from the top. Third man inside the cage Dan Mirgliota had no choice but to stop the bout, awarding Dan Henderson the famous victory.
It's a tremendous achievement for Dan Henderson, especially at the age of 40. Hendo will now face the winner of April 9th Mousasi-Kyle contest, eyeing a long run as the Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion.
Not bad for an old man.
