‘Feijão’ sharpening boxing not wrestling for Hendo

by Guilherme Cruz | source: tatame.com

Guilherme Cruz: What are the expectations for this fight?

Feijão Cavalcante: The trainings are pretty hard, with coach Erivan, today we did some Boxing prep, it’s a phenomenon the guys who are here: Anderson, Minotouro, Roberto Corvo, Erik Silva, Jaca… It’s a huge group and everybody’s in shape, we’ve trained a lot for this fight. Thanks God, everybody had their fights scheduled near each other, so we could help each other more, because we are our own sparrings, so as everybody’s on a good shape, we all push each other and the ones who weren’t prepared had to train even harder.

GC: How you’re preparing yourself for the Wrestling game he’ll try to bring you to?

FC: This training is not specific for this fight, usually do this training of attacking and defending on the grid. I don’t train much Wrestling... I train some specific Wrestling positions and I take classes once in a while, but I can’t play Wrestling a lot. I’ve trained for four months, but when it’s close to the fight you can get injured and I rather focus on what I’m best: Boxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu.

idk if i would agree faejao was getting "beat up pretty good" before he got MO. Mo had some sick body shots but faejae was holding his own and landing strikes.

Definitely going with Hendo on this one. Faejao was getting beaten up pretty good before he caught Mo with that knee. Hendo has way too much experience, iron chin, and an atomic right hand.That right is going to land eventually..

^^Shit my mistake, I read over it too quick. On that note, I fully agree with your deduction sir.

Did you skip over the word "not" or are you implying that he is being sarcastic?

Mo had a shitty knee I think, but there is no way he hasn't focused on some wrestling, but I'm guessing he'll use his BJJ to neutralize hendo's ground game or get back on his feet

Feijao is a tough fight for anyone, not sure how I am picking yet, don't think hendo can keep him on the ground, should be a brutal fight
