Quoteworthy:

"I feel like I am out there to win and to make sure I win every fight. Sometimes it doesn’t work out that way, but I don’t feel like it’s a do-or-die situation. I am not going to retire if it doesn’t go my way, but I feel very confident in my training for this fight. Hopefully, it won’t be an issue. It will not be a boring fight. I am in this to perform well, and I want to make sure it is exciting for the fans [so I can] bring new fans to the sport. I did not do that in my last fight, so I want to make sure this one is exciting."

Former PRIDE and UFC legend Dan Henderson doesn't sound too concerned about the ramifications of a loss to Renato Sobral in his "Rings" rematch this Saturday night (Dec. 4) under the Strikeforce banner in St. Louis. The promotion has already assigned title implications to their light heavyweight bout and there's no question that "Babalu" will be looking to avenge his majority decision loss from 2000. Does Henderson's apparent lack of urgency concern you in light of his poor showing in his "Nashville" debut? Or is this simply vintage "Hendo," cool, calm and collected right before fight night? Let's hear your predictions for Saturday night's Showtime event.
