Well, at Least We Still Have Babalu vs. Mousasi…


(Props: youtube.com/afflictionvideos via MMA Fanhouse)

It’s a small comfort in light of the canceled main event, but at least Affliction: Trilogy (if it is indeed still happening) will feature an important light-heavyweight bout between Renato "Babalu" Sobral and Gegard Mousasi. The above video promo paints the two fighters as polar opposites: Sobral is the hardy veteran who’s fought everybody and seen it all; the dangerous grappler who’s just as interesting outside of the ring. Mousasi is the young and confident striker who responds to every interview question with a deadpan shrug. It’s a clash of styles that will either solidify Sobral’s status as one of the best 205-pounders in the world, or prove that Mousasi can be dominant in a new weight class. "I’m the guy who wants to hurt him," Mousasi says, "[Sobral] only wants to submit me." Babalu responds with some of his trademark craziness: "If he talks shit, he gonna pee in the ring. If he doesn’t, he’s gonna pee anyway." Yikes. Gegard’s Bladder, you’ve just been put on notice…

After the jump: A preview of the middleweight bout that might not happen anymore — Vitor Belfort vs. Jorge Santiago.

I can't stand babalu. Ever since he refused to let go of a choke because the guy talked shit about him before the fight. People are fighting everyday to show that MMA isn't human cockfighting. And tools like this guy who will ruin it all for the rest of us when he finally seriously hurts someone. because he can't take someone talking shit before a fight.

Hope he gets KO'd like Chuck did him twice.

The 2 fights that I was most interested in on this card were Emalienenko vs. Barnett and Belfort vs. Santiago. So now Barnett's peepee is ruining the first one they want to break up the other interesting fight to try and do what? Put a MW in front of Fedor? Don't mess with Santiago Belfort.... I don't know maybe go talk to Coker about getting Werdum or Rogers.

Who are these people that Affliction finds to talk about the fighters? It looks like they're reading off a script.

Gegard needs to realize that when Renato submits you, YOU DO GET HURT.

Babalu would be a better replacement for Barnett than Vitor. Babalu has already gone the distance with Fedor. No matter what happens, Affliction is fucked.

My god, Babalu is actually batshit insane. Good fighter, though.

Jesus: I don't want anything to do with that fight.
