Ovince St. Preux believes that he's now ready to face notable fighters to test his standing in the light heavyweight division.

Almost two years ago, Ovince St. Preux was an unknown MMA fighter with a losing record searching for a rebound. When he returned to action in February of last year, he finished Brett Chism with a 75-second TKO finish, and Chris Hawk with a 47-second upset at Strikeforce: Nashville’s preliminary card. His performance caught the attention of the promotion’s brass, leading him back to Strikeforce twice. It was responded with a victory over Benji Radach and Antwain Britt. In addition to this, he also obtained wins over Jason Day and Claudio Godoi.

Then by the end of 2010, Ovince St. Preux anchors a 6-0 record.

Strikeforce’s new Light Heavyweight champ, Dan Henderson, says he will give it one more go this summer before taking his time off with his family. And the next logical contender on his list would be the winner of Gegard Mousasi vs Mike Kyle fight. However, Dan Henderson also pointed out that he is open to meeting Fedor Emelianenko inside the cage.

According to the new champ, his priority is to defend his title. But while on that, Dan Henderson is also willing to fight at middleweight or heavyweight if the right opportunity comes. And Fedor Emelianenko could present such a favorable circumstance. However, the Henderson vs Emelianenko superfight seems unlikely, since the front-runner for the Light Heavyweight champion’s return will be the winner of Mousasi vs Kyle bout.

Building a fight card for DREAM.16 has faced many hurdles on its way. And though it raised some eyebrows from the media, FEG was able to make form for the event.

Finally! After three weeks out, the DREAM.16 fight card is already shaping up. Last Sunday, Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) revealed some of the matches that will be featured in the event. DREAM Lightweight Champion Shinya Aoki will face Marcus Aurelio in a non-title match, Kazuyuki Miyata will fight against Takeshi Inoue, and Joachim Hansen will try to make his first win at the featherweight versus Hideo Tokoro. DREAM’s official YouTube Channel, on the other hand, confirmed that Kazushi Sakuraba will compete against Jayson Miller.

Kazuyuki Miyata was supposed to have a match versus Sengoku featherweight champion Marlon Sandro, but was scratched off late during the negotiation. The DREAM vs SRC aspect of DREAM.16 was also abandoned after an unsuccessful agreement between DREAM representatives and Sengoku. The event is scheduled for September 25, at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan, and is set to air live in North America via HDNet. DREAM.16 will serve as the final for DREAM Light Heavyweight Grand Prix, and is expected to crown the first champion in the division.
