(Feijao asks Dan Miragliotta to hold his hand while getting tattooed by Dan Henderson at Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson.)
Looks like it’s time to sound the do-or-die siren once again.
With a combined record of 3-4 2 NC since 2011 (both Feijao and Pokrajac’s UFC on FX 6 opponent, Joey Beltran, tested positive for PEDs last year), the UFC futures of Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante and Igor “The Duke” Pokrajac are on shaky ground to put it politely. While Feijao was trounced by Thiago Silva in his UFC debut at UFC on FUEL 10 in June, the Croatian has dropped 2 out of his last 3 contests. That being the case, the powerful and oft misunderstood Joe Silva has called upon these two gentlemen TO DO BATTLE.
*plays medieval trumpet, reads from scroll*
The winner shall receive the ultimate glory: a feast of carp, sloths, yams and breakfast cereals, as well as twenty thousand dollars cash. The loser shall be cast into Bellator purgatory forevermore. Tis a fate some consider worse than death, and other, humorless people oft lose their shit over when we joke about it.
Feijao vs. Pokrajac becomes just the third fight to join the UFC Fight Night 32: Belfort vs. Henderson card (along with the originally scheduled TUF Brazil finals match between Cezar Ferreira and Daniel Sarafian), which goes down on November 9th from somewhere in Brazil because Vitor Belfort is fighting. I know Dana White can’t see me, but I’m totally giving him the X-Pac Suck-It! gesture right now.
Who will be seeking new employment come November 10th, Potato Nation?
Fun facts: Cavalcante has never gone the distance in 15 contests and the Suck-It! gesture was originally a parody of Michael Buffer’s infamous “Let’s get ready to rumble!” catchphrase. Small world.
