Lindland-Lawler To Be Added To Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu?


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

According to a recent report, Strikeforce will soon announce the addition of Matt Lindland vs. Robbie Lawler to their December 4 card in St. Louis, featuring a co-main event with Dan Henderson vs. Renato “Babalu” Sobral and the return of NFL legend Herschel Walker in his second foray into the MMA cage.

The card, which airs live on the Showtime premium-cable channel, will serve as head-to-head competition for the UFC's “Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck” live Ultimate Fighter 12 finale show on the Spike TV basic-cable channel.

UFC today announced their co-main event presentation to serve as the top of the card in addition to the final fights from the reality show tournament, as Kendall Grove will challenge tough contender Demian Maia and Stephan Bonnar will battle Igor Pokrajac.

Also on the Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu card will be an exciting middleweight clash between one-time UFC bad boy Paul Daley, and the always entertaining, Rocky Balboa-like Scott Smith.

The Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu event will be live in the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, December 4, 2010 airing on the Showtime premium-cable channel.
