The man known for carrying both the middleweight and welterweight pride belt, Dan Henderson is back on his path for gold. A match-up between newly crowned Rafael Cavalcante and Dan Henderson is in the works for Strikeforce: Ohio on March 5.
After losing a title fight in his Strikeforce debut to former middleweight champ Jake Shields at Strikeforce: Nashville in April, Henderson bounced back with a first round knockout of former top contender Renato Sobral. Now Hendo will get his second chance for a SF belt.
Cavalcante in his last outing stopped the former light heavyweight champ, Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal with his elbows in the third back in August at Strikeforce: Houston.
