American Ryan Bader (16-4, 9-4 UFC) and Brazilian Rafael Cavalcante (12-4, 1-1 UFC) face off in a battle of material from the standpoint of power in the light heavyweight division. The winner in the next fight will have the right to expect the ball with the leading edge.
Hot Feijao in his UFC debut fared well in the first 2-3 minutes with his countryman, already slow UFC Thiago Silva, hitting him several powerful blows and impressive rotating elbow, but after that burst kondycyjnie and mentally, giving a completely suppress rival and eventually ending - the third time in his career - on the stage. Successfully defeat this powetował our next challenge when confronted in Brazil with Igor Pokrajac, which quickly slaughtered knees in the Thai clinch.
How to style the Brazilian on the feet is confronted with what to the Octagon in the plane kickboxing brings Ryan Bader? Well, an American stand-up has one, but a very serious problem, which is the defensive against impact. Even if Bader had a hard jaw, it could be until this matter but ... it is not. American lost in his career only admittedly twice by knockouts, but even in his last challenge, in which zapaśniczo smeared on the mat Anthony Perosh, had to stand up take a few blows, after which seemed a bit dazed, looking for time to regenerate the senses. Australian while in terms of skills stójkowych and impact force is two classes lower than Feijao. Brazilian may not be specifically mobile player (rather Bader will dance around him and not vice versa), but presents a policeman clearance and liquidity in the derivation of punches to the body and balances well head, which, combined with extremely heavy hands and good kicks (all 12 victories in his career after strokes!) makes it extremely dangerous for everyone. His style also allows him to conserve energy, which in his case is of considerable importance. The problem for Cavalcante is the fact that extremely ventures between fights, sometimes weighing looking really bad. However, self-motivated and well-prepared Feijao may constitute a challenge for almost every player in the heavyweight division.
