Dan Henderson’s rematch with Renato “Babalu” Sobral lasted a little over two minutes. Whereas the first encounter between the two, at Rings back in 2000, ended with Henderson winning on points, this time he left no doubt, landing his heavy hands for the first-round knockout.

The big winner on a night marked by knockouts, Hendo should now go on to face light heavyweight champion Rafel “Feijão” Cavalcante, and Anderson Silva and Nogueira brothers student.
