Bellator MW Champ Hector Lombard Wants To Face Dan Henderson In Strikeforce:
"I would sign that contract today," Lombard said. "Dan Henderson is a great fighter and a legend in the sport, but I know I have the skills to beat him."
Lombard's managers, Malki Kawa and Ricky Llorente of First Round Management, said Bellator officials have given Lombard their blessing to pursue the fight.
"(Bellator CEO) Bjorn Rebney has told us he's on board with Lombard taking this fight," Kawa said. "Obviously Hector will need to defend his title in 2010, but in the meantime, he'd really like to make this fight happen. Thankfully, Bjorn understands how Bellator can also benefit from a great performance by Hector at Strikeforce – not to mention what a great fight it would be for all MMA fans."
"I look forward to hearing something from Strikeforce," Lombard said. "I know they want to put on a great show on such a big stage, and I promise I can give that to them."
