Strikeforce has its sights set on a March 5 date for a light-heavyweight championship bout that would pit current kingpin Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante against challenger Dan Henderson, sources with knowledge of the situation have confirmed to MMA Fighting.

The event will take place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Feijao by TKO.



I love how everytime Hendo fights someone posts ______ by TKO completely forgeting Hendo has never been knocked out or stoped by punches. Not saying it would never happen but it its the last thing that comes to mind.

Is this the target Card for Overreem v Werdum? I would love that I just bought tickets to next months Fedor fight and Columbus is two hours closer! I'm begining to love Strikeforce now that its on the east coast and tickets are reasonable. LOL you can get floor tickets for like 35 buck more then a local shows cage side seats.

Look at Henderson-Shields. Shields had Hendo mounted for what added up to almost 4 rounds, and was punching him in the face repeatedly and didn't get ko'ed or tko'ed.

Hendo being knocked out in that fight is the absolute least likely outcome possible.

Feijao is the better striker, all he has to do is circle away from Hendo's telegraphed, one-dimensional hooks. Not to mention faster, and arguably just as good of a striker as Anderson and he almost stopped Henderson.

Just because it hasnt been done doesnt mean Dan is unstoppable (by strikes)

Shields and knockout in the same sentence? now that is the "least likely of outcomes"

Feijao is the better striker and if this enters the clinch Hendo has to worry about one of the best tiger knee specialists at LHW.

You have a good point, however, Anderson Silva also has quite a clinch, and he finished Hendo by Submission.

And this was when Anderson Silva was still fighting.

If the Spider couldn't do it.....

Two things..

One, I think this is a bad match for Hendo. The striking goes to Feijao, and in the clinch he's probably going to have an advantage as well. His takedown defense is suberb, stopping all of Mo's takedowns. Does Hendo have to bum rush in to win this fight? I dont like those odds even with his iron chin.

Two, whats wrong with Mike Kyle? he's improved a lot in the past few years. He was a few punches away from stopping Antonio Silva, as a small heavyweight. Yes Kyle beat Feijao, the first round was a feeler round kyle used his reach well, then Feijao gets a takedown in rd 2 but is gassed after Kyle makes his way to his feet. He turned his training around and lasted 3 hard rounds with Mo, winning most of the exchanges with a faster boxer and better wrestler than Kyle.

..If Kyle and Feijao fought when Feijao trained properly wouldn't you choose Feijao? (assuming you even play secondary league since you dont play primary league). Feijao admits he wasn't in the right shape for Kyle.

Not to mention demolishing 10 of 12 fighters. And the one loss and DQ are to HWs.
