MiddleEasy asked Cameron Dollar who would he pick if he had to assemble a team of X-men. His first choice was Renato “Babalu” Sobral. Over half of his 32 wins have come from submission and his last win over Sokoudjou came by way of ‘Brabo Choke‘ (wtf is that?). Peep that clip against David Heath at UFC 74. In a post-fight interview, Babalu knew Heath was trying to tap out but he admitted he wouldnt stop the choke until Heath passed out from hypoxia. After the fight, he told Joe Rogan that Heath needed to learn to respect him and he deserved it. It cost Babalu his UFC contract but dude…It was worth it.
Babalu is going to go toe to toe with Mousassi who just pwned Mark Hunt via kimura. Two dudes who can break any limb off of any human being at any given time and not even think about it. Affliction 3 makes me want to kick a hole through my desk out of sheer anticipitation and then blame it on my functional alcoholic neighbor. August 1st, the day the world ends. [Source]
