Fast rising light heavyweight prospect Ovince St. Preux, fresh off a unanimous decision win over Antwain Britt less than two weeks ago at Strikeforce Challengers 12, will strap on the gloves once again to battle Benji Radach at the upcoming "Henderson vs. Babalu" event on Dec. 4 in St. Louis.

Radach was gunning for a possible bout with Lucas Lopes after Herschel Walker withdrew from Saturday's Showtime-televised card due to injury; however, the promotion has instead matched him up with the former University of Tennessee linebacker, who is the winner of five consecutive fights with four (T)KO finishes.

I'm a Radach fan too; I don't get why SF wants to make him fight at 205 in his first fight in almost 2 years. I don't even know if he's ever fought above 185 in his career. I'd like to know the story behind why he's booked at 205 after the long layoff; whether it was his choice or Strikeforce's.

EDIT: Never-mind about wondering about the weight. Saw in another article that he accepted the fight with Lucas Lopes on 10 days notice and the opponent was switched to St. Preux. Couldn't have cut to 185 anyways.
