Cavalcante vs Diabate fight for Elite XC LHW title

http://mmamania.com/2008/09/22/rafae...yweight-title/

Quote:
Talented Brazilian light heavyweight Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante (7-1) will meet Cyrille “Snake” Diabate (12-6-1) for the first-ever Elite XC light heavyweight championship belt on November 8, according to an interview with Tatame.com. Here’s a snip from Cavalcante:
“It looks like I’m going to face Cyrille Diabate, who fought with Shogun (Rua) in Pride. I think will be him, 90% chances.”
Feijao’s last fight was a first round destruction of Travis Galbraith at Elite XC: “Unfinished Business” back in July. The win was the third straight for the Team Nogueria product under the Elite XC banner. All three wins have been first round technical knockouts.
He’s made a pretty good name for himself during the streak and is regarded by most to be the top 205-pound fighter on the Pro Elite roster. Of course, having Anderson Silva and Minotauro Nogueira in your corner doesn’t hurt your popularity either.
He is an obvious choice for the division’s first title fight.
Diabate will make his second appearance on an Elite XC card. In his last fight he defeated Jaime Fletcher by unanimous decision at Sho XC 7: “Hamman vs. Suganuma II.”
He’s been victorious in six of his past seven fights with the lone loss coming at the hands of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at Pride: “Final Conflict Absolute” in 2006.
He’s a lanky dude, using his long limbs as part of a nasty Muay Thai attack. He’ll need to use those to keep his distance from Feijao because of the size disadvantage. Feijao used to fight at heavyweight and he’s pretty large for 205 pounds.
He’ll definitely have a strength advantage against the Frenchman.
Regardless, this fight will be tough for Diabate wherever it goes. Feijao has already demonstrated his ability in the stand up and he’s said good things about his ground game in the past. Considering his training partners, I’d say he’s probably pretty good on the mat too.
Accordingly, there aren’t too many weaknesses in Feijao’s game — the Elite XC light heavyweight title is his to lose.
There is no venue set for the November 8 Elite XC event, which is set to air live on Showtime.
