Babalu Sobral Doesn’t Want Strikeforce Title Shot vs. King Mo, Hopes to Rematch Dan Henderson

Renato Babalu SobralAfter outpointing Robbie Lawler on Wednesday in the main event of “Strikeforce: Los Angeles” to earn another shot at the light heavyweight title, former champion Renato “Babalu” Sobral said he won’t fight his friend and current 205-pound champ Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and instead hopes to rematch Dan Henderson.

“Of course, I want to be a champion again but I’m old school and he is my friend and friends last longer than title belts,” Sobral said. “In the beginning of my career I fought Dan Henderson in Japan and lost to him. I don’t want to disrespect, but I would like to fight him. It would be an honor to fight him again, to have the chance to fight Dan Henderson.”
