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 would 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 Nostradamus and I’m just an imitator.
Babalu shares his name with a porn star. Bet you didn’t know that. He also fights Tatsuya Mizuno on June 23rd in ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors. There’s a good chance you didn’t know that either. MiddleEasy will be on location in Malaysia covering all the ONE FC festivities, like we always have been since the inception of the organization back in 2011. We’re starting off ONE FC fight week just a little bit early this time with this Babalu Sobral promo, but be sure to check back on MiddleEasy for more content leading up to next weekend’s event which will be streamed live on ONEFC.com.
