Rafael Cavalcante, the artist better known as Feijao, has had a few big highlights throughout his career, but finally picking up his first UFC victory is a pretty big deal. Rafael Cavalcante stepped into the ring tonight against a very game Igor Pokrajic but demonstrated just how tough he really can be, as Pokrajic had him up against the cage, but it still wasn’t enough. Rafael Cavalcante locked in a thai clinch and started throwing big knees before one connected flush, then came more, then some punches and that was all that we could ask for.
This was also the second fight in a row on this card where a guy has had to tap to strikes. Weird, right?
