Babalu Sobral vs. Jacob Noe - Round 1 - A lot of feeling out for the first minute. They clinch up and both work some knees before they separate. Noe with a short hook that gets in. Babalu lands a nice punch, but Noe counters well. Babalu shoots for a takedown but can't get it. Jab lands for Babalu. Noe lands a good shot after a break for having been hit with a low blow. Noe counters the kick with a punch again. 10-9 Noe for me.
Round 2 - Babalu working the jab early this round. Noe with a big left hook. Noe is cut a bit but he cracks Babalu a few times. Babalu lands a counter right hand. Babalu is having luck landing hard leg kicks now and Noe is feeling it. Noe with a few hard shots and Babalu taunts him, but he gets hit in the head again and his legs are getting rubbery. 10-9 Noe.
Round 3 - Noe cracks him again. Babalu looks for the takedown, really wanting to get the fight to the ground and try t grind out a round. Babalu was deep but wasn't able to finish it off and Noe lands a straight shot to the face. Big left by Noe and Babalu is badly hurt. Noe following up and Bablu is bleeding and badly rocked but Noe isn't pressing very hard. Another right for Noe. Noe is really hammering him and Babalu turns his back and is unsteady so the ref ends it. Jacob Noe wins by TKO (referee stoppage), round 3.
It looked like it was going down the frighteningly unconscious road for Sobral again, I'm glad he didn't go out on that note. Won't be surprised if he fights again. But he's had quite the journey, best to Babalu if he is done.
