Anybody else seriously impressed by these 2? (not sure if there brothers) Feijao looks like he could contend with the UFC guys with some more experience and a training with anderson and a good camp ...even right now, as could JZ at 155

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're not brothers. They both do have great potential and I think JZ is a top LW.

yea i was thinking if they're brother why dont they have the same last name.....nways, i think both have great potential, and have been very impressive, however, if both came to the UFC, i think JZ would have a much better chance at being the champ than Feijao would.

Didn't JZ just get dominated not to long ago?

IMO Aoki can only beat jz by decision. Jz's strength +sub d is too good to be subed by aoki, I think the 2 fights show this. Aoki threw everything he had at him. The first fight , illegal or not jz was winning that fight. Any other fighter in dream would of got a pound out stoppage for the loss. dream 4 had countless back of the head shots uncalled. I would take JZ in a 3rd encounter.

your not allowed to throw elbows in Dream, he would have received a NC against any other fighter as well because it was an illegal blow that caused nerve damage to Aoki and he was unable to continue. and yes, i think Aoki would win another UD if they fought again by taking it to the ground and controlling it like he did the 2nd time.

I think 89vision is right, I was going by what they had on Sherdog. I thought his last name was Feijao, but it is in fact Cavalcante.

Sherdog has it wrong, they have his win over Wayne Cole listed under Rafael Feijao

JZ vs Sean Sherk could be an interesting fight.

That was domination? As for the illegal elbows, they were to the shoulders and those are legal. The NC was a bad decision IMO.
