Rafael Cavalcante vs. Igor Pokrajac set for UFC fight night 32
By Evan Stoumbelis – @MMAEvan
The UFC officially announced today that light-heavyweights Igor Pokrajac and Rafael Cavalcante will square off at UFC Fight Night 32: Henderson vs. Belfort.
Pokrajac is 2-2-1 in his last 5 fights, most recently dropping a unanimous decision loss to Ryan Jimmo in June. Before that Pokrajac lost to Joey Beltran via decision but the loss was ruled a no contest after Beltran tested positive for steroids. Before that Pokrajac won back to back fights against Krzysztof Soszynski and Fabio Maldonado.
Cavalcante on the other hand is 0-1 in the UFC, the former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion lost his UFC debut to Thiago Silva back in June as well, losing by KO in just 31 seconds.
Both men will be under pressure in this fight, seeing as how both are looking to make statements and get on a win streak.
