Feijao, seven others receive medical suspensions
Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante and seven other fighters have been suspended following last Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson.”
The Ohio State Athletic Commission released the list to MMAWeekly.com earlier today.
Cavalcante, who lost his 205 lb. strap to Dan Henderson in the main event of the evening, has been issued a 60 day suspension following the knockout loss, while fellow main card fighters Jorge Masvidal and Billy Evangelista received indefinite suspensions.
Also being put on the shelf to heal up, Jason Riley and Ian Rammel were given indefinite suspensions, and JP Felty matched “Feijao” with a 60 day suspension of his own. Lastly, Billy Vaughn and Mitch Whitesel were handed suspensions of 30 and 90 days, respectively.
“Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson” took place at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio this past Saturday. The card broadcast live on Showtime in the 10 p.m. ET slot.
