'Babalu' Sobral calls out Dan Henderson after 'Los Angeles' win over Robbie Lawler


Props: MMA Weekly


"I won't never punch and try to hurt my friends, but I would like to ask for a fight, and all the respect that I have, in the beginning of my career I fought Dan Henderson in Japan and lost to him. I don't want to disrespect, but I would like to fight him. It's going to be 11 years since I fought him. It's a long time, and please, it would be an honor to fight him again, to have the chance to fight Dan Henderson."

Former UFC light heavyweight Renato Sobral sets his sights on another Zuffa exile for a potential rematch with Dan Henderson, who narrowly beat the Brazilian under the RINGS banner way back in February 2000. "Babalu" outstruck "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler at the June 16 "Los Angeles" event but would rather not fight current friend and division champion "King Mo" despite taking a step up in the 205-pound rankings. Hendo is coming off a flat performance against Jake Shields and has not yet been paired up for his sophomore appearance in Strikeforce. Anyone want to see these two longtime veterans hook 'em up for another go-round this fall?
