Quoteworthy:

"Regardless of whether my next fight was going to be on CBS or Showtime, I am pretty sure Babalu would have been my opponent, regardless ... If I have some goals in this sport, I can’t take my time getting there ... I’m a different guy and he’s a different guy now. It’s almost like it’s not even a rematch. It was in a different organization, and with different rules. No punches to the head on the floor, and they stand you up very quickly, too. It really makes it a different fight ... There are a lot of tough fights at 205, and Babalu is one of them. That one will be very exciting, and there’s no sense in talking about what’s beyond that."

Former UFC and PRIDE middleweight Dan Henderson will lock horns with fellow jet-setting veteran Renato Sobral in a light heavyweight scrap under the Strikeforce banner on Dec. 4 in St. Louis. The Showtime network will televise their rematch from 2000, which saw Hendo walk away with a majority decision. Will history repeat itself? Or will "Babalu" send him to his second straight loss since defecting to San Jose?
