Fejao: Henderson's Right Hand Is What Went Wrong In The Bout
Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael "Fejao" Cavalcante talks to Tatame.com about his loss to Dan Henderson this past weekend at Strikeforce and tells them what was the turning point in the match:
"That punch was what went wrong, thatâ€™s to begin with. I was doing fine in the bout. I was taken down unnecessarily and itâ€™s pretty hard to take me down. He set a good game plan and fought well. Heâ€™s a clever guy, he knows how to fight, heâ€™s experienced and I thought my good conditioning would make a difference and I was feeling fine and Iâ€™d move forwards on the fourth round, but heâ€™s dangerousâ€¦ Unfortunately, that punch landed, but I was following my game plan, trying to work on the medium and long distance, avoiding to be in a danger zone. He uses his mind a lot when heâ€™s fighting. The first coup that he launched on me was that and you saw what happened, right? I canâ€™t say anything."
