Pokrajac never had much of a chance against “Feijao” but it was nice to see Cavalcante perform up to expectations after getting starched by Thiago Silva in his Octagon debut. He’s still a threat to most of his peers based on a slick submission game often overshadowed by his powerful stand-up. Then again, he’s also a threat to test positive for PEDs based on a slip up while in Strikeforce. A fight with Fabio Maldonado would be fun or possibly Ryan Jimmo based on availability and mid-card standing.
It’s hard to know where to begin when it comes to the evening’s biggest winners at UFC Fight Night 32. After all, nine of the eleven efforts involved finishes including Vitor Belfort’s historic knockout of Dan Henderson in the main event. There was also an upset or two as well as the emergence of names to watch in 2014 like Brandon Thatch and Jeremy Stephens. It was an excellent show from top to bottom, giving fans in Brazil and tuning in at home plenty to cheer about on Saturday night. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
