Yesterday at “Strikeforce at the Playboy Mansion” a special announcement was made that the recently released UFC fighter had signed with the California-Based, Strikeforce organization.
Renato “Babalu” Sobral was recently in the news for being fined $25,000 and released from the UFC after refusing to break a chokehold on opponent David Heath at UFC 74. This was a tragic event for the fighter who was having trouble finding an organization to sign him. The fighter said that he extended the choke due to some disrespectful comments that Heath said towards Babalu.
There are no news stating when Babalu will fight, however it should be interesting to see how this move will affect his game.
