Rafael “Feijão” Cavalcante Looking To Test Himself Against Dan Henderson

By Charttopper

On March 5, Strikeforce light heavyweight champ Rafael “Feijão” Cavalcante (10-2) will meet Dan Henderson (26-8) in Columbus to defend his title for the first time. The challenge of meeting the former PRIDE champ excites Cavalcante as he looks to test himself against some of the worlds best fighters.

Both men will meet in the headlining main bout of Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson which takes place on March 5 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

“Feijão” earned the title last August by defeating Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in the third round by TKO of the Strikeforce: Houston event. It was his third victory in a row and is 6-1 in his last seven fights.

“I was very excited when I knew I was going to fight someone like Dan Henderson. I am very interested in testing myself against the best fighters in the world, against the biggest names. And that motivates me to go out there and keep improving…I like the match up. I like the match up with Dan Henderson anywhere it goes. Whether it’s standing up, whether it’s in the clinch, whether it’s boxing, (or) whether it goes to the ground. I have put together a good strategy with my training partners; the Nogueira brothers, Anderson (Silva), “Jacare” (Souza). I feel very confident for this fight. I’m very well prepared, I’m in shape, and I feel very comfortable and excited about anywhere where Dan wants to go. Anywhere the fight goes, I am well prepared.”
