Feijao vs. Diabate possible for Elite XC LHW Title.

Quote:
After confirming exclusively to TATAME.com that he’ll do his next fight in EliteXC for the light-heavyweight title, Rafael “Feijão” Cavalcante said that his trainings now are focused in one opponent. “It looks like I’m going to face Cyrille Diabate, who fought with Shogun (Rua) in Pride. I think will be him, 90% chances”, said the athlete, that will face at November 8th card. With three fast knockouts on the event, Cavalcante keeps training with Anderson Silva to win the belt.



“We’re training very hard, Anderson trains at (October) 25th and I’ll fight at (November) 5th, so we’re training together. I saw all of his fights here with Anderson and he’s from Muay Thai, good standing up and has a reasonable ground game, and I’ll beat this guy standing up, we’re training for that”, guarantees Rafael, training with the UFC middleweight dominance champion.



"I'm getting beat a lot, but I can handle it. I’m training with Daniel Wiorin standing up, and Boxing with Maldonado, and after that it’s hard to lose for anyone, I ca handle any fighter”, jokes Cavalcante, eyeing his first title in career after 10 fights. “Win this belt is like a dream coming true, everything I always wanted. I train hard and no nothing wrong to avoid any surprises. It’ll be the first of many other belts”.
Feijao is a one of the good things about Elite XC.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Feijao is a one of the good things about Elite XC.

So is Cyrille Diabate.

Man this is going to be an awsome fight. Diabate's reach is insane. He'll want to keep it standing as I think that Feijao would be too much for him on the ground.

Either way, I see this as an exciting fight. Feijao wins.

Yeah Cyrille is cool aswell. Feijao is more well rounded which is why I said that, I think his future is bright. Unless he stays in EXC

If this fight stays on it's feet, it should be class.

Feijao by submission in the end though, I think.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

Feijao has an awsome clinch game.

But Diabate is so tall I'm not sure if he will be able to use it affectivley.

Feijao is very well rounded. And I think that he'll win. I want to see the way he goes about it though.
