Forced out of a light heavyweight clash with Ovince St. Preux in November due to a shoulder injury, Rafael Cavalcante is anxious to get back in action. The former Strikeforce 205-pound champion couldn’t do much in the gym during recovery time. In fact, "Feijao" couldn’t do anything at all for a few weeks, and that made him gain a lot of weight. "I couldn’t train or work out. I couldn’t even run, man," Cavalcante told MMAFighting.com. "I went up to 255 pounds. I was soft. I lost a lot already, an read news >>

I guess Rafael Cavalcante wasn't joking when he said Anderson Silva was beating him up in training camp. At least he didn't get knocked out, like the poor sap in this video from "The Spider's" recent training camp. The footage, which was filmed by Globo and posted by Guilherme Cruz, shows what happens when you throw hands with the former UFC middleweight champion and one of the all-time greats.
