A couple of years ago, my ex-girlfriend told me that if she encountered Renato Sobral, she would leave me for him. It was cool, I just wanted her to come back with a three-paragraph essay on how it was. Babalu has always been one of my favorite fighters. I was one of the few who actually predicted Babalu to defeat Lawler at Strikeforce LA and I will brag about this until I get some type of reward for my soothsaying accomplishment. Then again, there was a guy on The Underground that had a dream Fedor would get KOd by Dan Henderson. Perhaps he’s the real MMA Nastradamus and I’m just an imitator.
At the last Strikeforce Challengers card, Ovince St. Preux made it abundantly clear that he was aiming for a shot at Gegard Mousasi or Babalu — or he would take on both fighters in a hypothetical endurance match, Mortal Kombat style. Babalu saw our interview with OSP and judging from this video, he appears to happily accept OSP’s challenge for a bout.
