UFC Quick Quote: Rousimar Palhares will feel ‘weird’ fighting Alexandre ‘Cacareco’ Ferreira

"The boss told us to fight, so we'll have to do it, but I don't like facing a Brazilian, specially when it's a friend of mine, like Cacareco. It'll be weird to see him on the other side of the Octagon ready to fight me. We've trained together for many time, we've helped each other a lot... I really like him, I consider him a good friend and training partner. As I see it, it won't change our friendship one bit, and I hope he sees it that way too."

Middleweight grappler Rousimar Palhares tells Tatame.com that he's none too pleased about fighting his good friend AlexandreFerreira at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3 in Louisville, Kentucky. Both combatants were training partners at Brazilian Top Team. Now Ferreira is a member of Chute Boxe. The last time we saw two close friends battle in the 185-pound division, we got three rounds of exciting action when Mark Munoz defeated Aaron Simpson at UFC 123. Can "Toquinho" and "Cacareco" also give the fans a fight to remember?
