Strikeforce continues to round out the preliminary card for the promotion’s upcoming December 4th event in St. Louis, as two more bouts have been added to the event. The “Babalu vs. Henderson” card will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between former Strikeforce champ Renato “Babalu” Sobral and former Pride champion Dan Henderson (pictured).
The latest bouts to be confirmed for the event include a light-heavyweight fight between Lee Brousseau (7-2) and Mike Glenn (6-4), and a 130lb. catch-weight bout between J.W. Wright (pro debut) and Ben Brown (1-0).
Brousseau has won three of his last four fights and is coming off a first round, submission win over Oscar Glover in August. Prior to that, Brousseau was tapped out by Franciso France while making his Strikeforce debut in May.
“I’m absolutely looking to make amends on Dec. 4,” Brousseau said in a press release from the promotion. “Honestly, I just got caught. I’d love to have a rematch. I don’t talk down to anybody and have respect for everybody that does what we do, but I don’t feel he is that much better than me. It just turned out he took advantage of an opportunity before I could. He deserves credit.”
“My coaches tell me Glenn is a tough, scrappy guy who is decent all-around and not bad anywhere. He is definitely going to be a tough opponent. This should be a great fight. I’m looking forward to it.”
Glenn, who will be making his Strikeforce debut, has been competing professionally since 2007.
“I am 100 percent ready, physically and mentally, and totally motivated for this opportunity,” said Glenn. “In this fight you have two fighters with a lot to prove. This means a lot to both of us and it is our chance to move up. It ought to be a very exciting fight from start to finish.”
“I don’t exactly know how to describe my style,” Glenn added. “I consider myself a true mixed martial artist and feel I can do it all, whether on the ground or standing.”
The December 4th event will be broadcast on Showtime and will also feature Antonio “Big Foot” Silva (14-2) vs. Valentijn “The Python” Overeem (28-23), Paul “Semtex” Daley (25-9-2) vs. Scott “Hands Of Steel” Smith (17-7, 1 NC), “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler (17-6, 1 NC) vs. Matt “The Law” Lindland (22-7), and Herschel Walker (1-0) vs. Scott Carson (4-1),
