A light heavyweight matchup between former 205-pound champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante and rising prospect Ovince St. Preux has been targeted for a July Strikeforce event, according to MMA Fighting.

Feijao (10-3) lost the title with a third-round TKO to Dan Henderson in March after three-straight wins, while St. Preux (10-4) earned three Strikeforce wins between November and January.

A welterweight bout between Tarec Saffiedine and Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos is also rumored for the July event, which is expected to mark the promotion’s pay-per-view debut.

A non-title superfight between light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson and former top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko is expected to headline the fight card that also includes Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal vs. Roger Gracie.
