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.

" I don't feel like it's a do-or-die situation. I am not going to retire if it doesn't go my way, but I feel very confident in my training for this fight. Hopefully it won't be an issue." ---Dan Henderson

Albeit next month’s main event and rematch with Renato Sobral is a big fight for Dan Henderson, it is unlikely to be his final bout. After failing to win the Strikeforce Middleweight title, Henderson moved back to light heavyweight en route to Strikeforce’s December 4 match.

Dan Henderson left UFC in late 2009, and headlined Strikeforce’s return to the CBS airwaves last April. Unfortunately, reigning champion Jake Shields exhausted Henderson for a lopsided unanimous decision win. But this time around, he doesn’t seem to have the same problems when he meets Sobral in a rematch. Henderson doesn’t feel this is a fight that could end his career.

He put together consecutive knockout victories after a back-to-back loss in 2009. Though he has good hands with great powers, 15 of Valentijn Overeem’s loss has come by way of submission. Antonio Silva, meanwhile, got a pretty successful run at heavyweight since his first appearance in 2005. Silva’s sole defeat came from a unanimous decision loss to Fabricio Werdum in November 2009.

The December 4 Strikeforce will feature a long overdue rematch between Dan Henderson and Renato Sobral, and will take action at the Scottrade Center, in St. Louis, Missouri.
