Strikeforce Live Blog: Antwain Britt vs. Rafael 'Feijao' Cavalcante Updates

ST. LOUIS -- This is the Strikeforce live blog for Antwain Britt vs. Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante, a light heavyweight bout on tonight's Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery card.

Britt comes from a wrestling background and was victorious in his Strikeforce debut last December against Scott Lighty. Cavalcante trains out of Team Nogueira and is gunning for a shot against champion King Mo.

The live blog is below.

Round 1: The two men circle each other cautiously and already the crowd starts booing. They both move in throwing hard and Cavalcante presses Britt against the cage. Britt drills a right hand through Cavalcante's defenses. Some serious leather flying around in the cage with these two. "Feijao" tries for a thai clinch but Britt punches his way out, briefly staggering Cavalcante. The ref breaks up a prolonged clinch and Cavalcante comes right out with a high kick followed by a big right hand that makes Britt's legs go rubbery. "Feijao" pours it on with a damaging left hook, followed by an uppercut, and Britt collapses against the cage. Cavalcante lands one more right hand on Britt's prone body before the ref pulls him off.

Rafael Cavalcante def. Antwain Britt via TKO (strikes) at 3:45 of round 1.
