Antwain Britt: A win over 'Feijao' makes me a top contender for the title


The up-and-coming light heavyweight tells MMA Fighting they could square off on Showtime in May ...

"I think it's a good match-up for me. He's a big, strong guy. Of course, the fight camp he has over there, he trains with a lot of good guys, so I think he brings a lot to the table. You got a puncher's chance in this game. You know, him getting knocked out by Mike Kyle, it showed some of his weaknesses, but in the big scheme of things, anybody can get caught on any given day. So any time I train, I train for the most dangerous guy in the world, and I'm really training hard for this fight. I'm in the gym every day training for the most dangerous people. I definitely see myself, with a win over 'Feijao,' as the top contender for the title."

Antwain Britt looks to vault himself into Strikeforce's 205-pound title chase by defeating the exceptionally talented Rafael Cavalcante, who despite an upset loss to Mike Pyle last June, has been electric since his 2006 professional debut at Pantanal Combat. Can "The Juggernaut" smash his way into bigger and better things at the expense of the Brazilian? Or will "Feijao" send him tumbling down the light heavyweight ladder?
