Babalu’s Foray Into Fighting Below 205 Not a One Time Deal


(Video courtesy of Sherdog)

According to Renato "Babalu" Sobral, his upcoming 195-pound catchweight bout with Robbie Lawler on June 16 isn’t a one-off appearance for the former Strikeforce champion at a lighter weight as the Brazilian submission specialist is planning a further drop to compete as a middleweight in the foreseeable future.

Since his friend and training partner, Muhammed King Mo’ Lawal won the title Babalu previously held by defeating the man who took his belt, Gegard Mousasi in April, Sobral says that the fact that he would never fight anyone on his team necessitated the drop in weight.



Babalu, who dropped a decision to Fedor Emelianenko as heavyweight in 2001, told Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt that he hasn’t weighed 185 since high school and said it isn’t outside of the realm of possibility that we may see him jump back up one or two weight classes in the future.

The 34-year-old Gracie Barra BJJ black belt who was dropped by the UFC after failing to relinquish a choke on David Heath at UFC 74, has put together a solid 4-1 record outside of the Octagon with wins over Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Bobby Southworth and Mike Whitehead. He suffered his lone loss — a knockout against Mousasi last August and has not fought since, blaming the extended absence from the cage on Showtime.

@ Mr Mc Fap Fappy - Never heard of that one but that is a damn fine idea! It will be hard to find an extra to match my huge wang though. Not a lot of 3+inchers roaming around in my neck of the woods. I have a pretty long list, but I will put that on there. Close to the top too. I'm still trying to pull off the "rodeo" but that will be next. Maybe I can even get video.

@ Miss and throw pee, have you ever done the helmet on the closet twist? basically you just pop a hole in the top of your closet that your head can fit through and a standard bike helmet will cover, one guy slips into the closet watching through the visor, and the premise is, you just tag through, one guy porking one guy watching one guy waiting, has to be doggie style. Need to pick your girls for this one though, go straight to the grateful"n" horny and it should work

Getting rides in stranger's soundproof vans could get you perv romped. In your poop shoot. With a rusty trombone. OK, I totally crossed the line.

@ Guestboner

Have you ever heard of the Houdini? It takes a little planning but it is well worth the reward!

Here's what you do: you bone the crap out of your girl (or whatever it is that works for you) from the good old doggy postion, or maybe bent over the couch or something. Have a well trained extra waiting on standby in the wings in "stage left" position. At a pre-arranged but brief interlude, have him carefully jump in and take over for you. You wait a minute or two and then non-chalantly stroll past your girl to go get a beer or what have you. Hillarity ensues!
