Strikeforce: Benji Radach vs Lucas Lopes possible for 'Henderson vs Babalu' on Dec. 4


When it was announced that Herschel Walker suffered a cut and would no longer be fighting this December, Strikeforce was left to scramble to fill the gap.

It appears they may have done just that.

Rugged striker Benji Radach has announced, via his facebook page, that he will be competing on the Strikeforce: "Henderson vs Babalu" card on Dec. 4 in St. Louis, live on Showtime starting at 10 p.m. ET.

According to Radach, he will be on the televised portion of the card. The middleweight is taking this fight on 10 days notice, and will be fighting at 205 lbs. in the light heavyweight division. His opponent will be Lucas Lopes.

"Razor" was last seen losing an epic slugfest a little over a year and a half ago to Scott Smith. His return is a bit of a risk on such short notice due to the fact that he's stated he's been focusing solely on fitness training as of late.

Lopes fought for Strikeforce twice last year (2009) and won both contests but is currently on a two fight losing streak against less than stellar competition.

Strikeforce: "Henderson vs Babalu" is set to go down on Dec. 4 from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The main event will feature a rematch over 10 years in the making between heavy-handed wrestler Dan Henderson and the ever aggressive Renato "Babalu" Sobral.

Also on the card will be longtime middleweight contender Robbie Lawler taking on fellow division veteran Matt Lindland. A welterweight slugfest will also make the live broadcast pitting British striker Paul Daley against captain comeback Scott Smith.

Stay tuned to for more updates on this card as they become available.
