Strikeforce: Feijão and Jacaré take titles; Galvão knocks out Macaco

Share it

The outcome of this Saturday’s Strikeforce: Houston was two new champions: For the vacant middleweight title, Ronaldo Jacaré got the better of Tim Kennedy, and the light heavyweight belt switched hands after Rafael Feijão overcame King Mo.

From the outset Rafael Feijão took the lead in the standup department against King Mo, which opened the way to his triumph. In the first round Mo managed to land a well-placed takedown, but Feijão responded with solid strikes. After an evenly-matched first round, Feijão managed a knockdown in the third stanza. King Mo tried to recover, but was knocked out by a string of knees and elbows. Thus Feijão secured the organization’s light heavyweight belt, as well as his ninth knockout in ten wins.

Known for his skill on the ground, Ronaldo Jacaré didn’t use much of his Jiu-Jitsu against Tim Kennedy. In the middleweight title deciding fight the black belt took the upper hand through his standup. Jacaré did try for the takedown, but Kennedy’s wrestling prevailed. The Brazilian’s boxing came on strong, though. A cross in the third round opened a deep gash on his opponent, and at the end of the bout the judges deemed Souza the victor by unanimous decision.

In the preliminary matchups, André Galvão’s win over also-black belt in Jiu-Jitsu Jorge “Macaco” Patino stood out. Galvão went to his ground work and ground and pound, while Macaco landed some solid strikes in the standup action. The bout went to the third round, when Galvão landed punches for the knockout at 2:45 min, with Macaco on all fours.

Veteran Vinicius “Draculino” Magalhães debut in the organization on the right foot with his unanimous-decision win over Rocky Long. Another black belt Chad “Robo” Robichaux beat Humberto DeLeon and remains unbeaten in MMA with nine wins.
