‘Revenge is a dish best served cold’
~ Old Klingon proverb

Cold. Detached.

Those are the ways that revenge is supposed to happen so emotion doesn’t get involved, and it seemed that was the way former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante was going to attack and finish Mike Kyle, a man that defeated him in 2009.

A rematch 3 years in the making and the Brazilian certainly did his part to erase his TKO loss to Kyle as he put him away in emphatic fashion in just over 30 seconds.

As soon as the fight started, Feijao was on the attack and after missing with an overhand right, he followed with a big knee as Kyle was ducking to avoid the punch and it landed flush on the jaw.

With Kyle in survival mode doing everything he could to avoid the barrage of strikes, he didn’t see the guillotine choke coming from the former champion.

Feijao locked on the guillotine choke with Kyle still standing, and try as he could, the American Kickboxing Academy fighter could not shake him off. A few moments later Kyle jumped to the mat to try and loosen the hold, but it was to no avail.

The choke only tightened around his neck and Kyle was forced to tap out giving Feijao the victory.

Now with two wins in a row since losing the Strikeforce 205lb title to Dan Henderson in 2011, Feijao is committed to regaining the strap, hopefully later this year.
“If Strikeforce give me a chance I want the belt,” said Cavalcante after the win.

A most likely candidate to face Feijao would be fellow former champion Gegard Mousasi later this year when he recovers from injury.
