“Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu II” took place Saturday night inside the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
The company’s end of the year bash will featured the eagerly awaited light heavyweight rematch between MMA icons Dan Henderson and Renato “Babalu” Sobral.
Henderson took a controversial majority decision against Babalu in Japan’s Rings organization over 10 years ago.
Moments after narrowly beating Robbie Lawler at “Strikeforce: Los Angeles” this past June, Babalu passed on an opportunity to challenge then-champ and buddy Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal for his crown. Instead, he had redemption on his mind as he called for the MMA legend.
Hendo is looking to rebound from a disappointing unanimous decision loss to Jake Shields in his debut for the San Jose, California based promotion.
