Scott Coker confirms Dan Henderson’s move back to 205 pounds vs. “Babalu”

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker has revealed former UFC and PRIDE veteran, Dan Henderson will move back to the light heavyweight division for his next fight inside the cage, moast likely against Renato “Babalu” Sobral.

Coker, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“Dan I believe when I talked to him over the weekend, I talked to Jordan, his manager, and they said they probably want to fight at 205 instead of 185. (They) felt that the weight cut was too much, and Dan would welcome to fight Babalu again, Gegard Mousasi, for a 205-pound contender’s bout. I don’t think you’ll see Dan in the 185-pound tournament, although stranger things have happened in MMA, right?”

“We haven’t finalized it, but I would think the top two guys, Babalu and Gegard, depends on what happens with Gegard, but I think a fight between Babalu and Dan is something we might pursue in the very near future.”
