Next month's main event and rematch with Renato "Babalu" Sobral (36-8 MMA, 2-1 SF) is a big fight for former UFC and PRIDE star Dan Henderson (25-8 MMA, 0-1 SF).

But it's unlikely to be the final bout for the 40-year-old fighter and 13-year MMA veteran.

With a move back to light heavyweight following a failed big to win the Strikeforce middleweight title, Henderson said he feels great heading into Showtime's Dec. 4 headliner.

The event, "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu," takes place at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

"I have always felt comfortable at 205," said Henderson, who previously held PRIDE titles in both weight classes, during a media conference call. "I have never felt weak or out-powered. I can eat a good meal the night before the fight. ... It's one less thing I need to worry about before the fight. I am hanging out at 203, 204 (pounds)."

I don't think that the quality of the current champion in each weight class is playing into Hendersons decision as much as not being able to make MW easily anymore.
