Finally a replacement has been found.
“Touted Brazilian Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante will face fellow Pro Elite veteran Jared Hamman in a featured light heavyweight bout for Strikeforce “Lawler vs. Shields” on June 6 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.”
“The matchup replaces a previously announced tilt for the Strikeforce light heavyweight title between champion Renato “Babalu” Sobral and Feijao. Sobral withdrew from the bout last week to prepare for the birth of his second daughter in late May.”
Hamman (10-1) impressed many with his fights in Showtimes ShoXC challenger series, with wins over Aaron Rosa, Travis Wiuff and Poai Suganuma.
