Strikeforce Poster Henderson Babalu Herschel

Three days after announcing Renato “Babalu” Sobral would be granted his long awaited rematch against Dan Henderson on December 4th inside the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, Strikeforce has released the card’s official event poster.

Henderson took a majority decision against Babalu over 10 years ago in Japan’s Rings organization and the Brazilian hasn’t forgotten about it. The light heavyweights will headline the Showtime broadcast, which will air at 10PM ET/PT.

In addition, Sherdog.com just confirmed three preliminary bouts for the night. A welterweight tilt between James Terry and Bret Bergmark, a lightweight matchup with Jess Bouscal and Luis Mendoza and a 185-pound scrap between Ron Keslar and Eric Lawson.

NFL star turned MMA fighter Herschel Walker and St. Louis native Jesse Finney will also be making their returns to the cage. No opponents have been named for either contestant.

Here are the athletes expected/rumored for the extravaganza:

Herschel Walker vs. TBD
Jesse Finney vs. TBD
James Terry vs. Bret Bergmark
Jess Bouscal vs. Luis Mendoza
Ron Keslar vs. Eric Lawson
Scott Smith vs. Paul Daley
Valentijn Overeem vs. Antonio Silva
