I actually like the fight, as Vernon White is still a solid fighter, who can pose problems for pretty much anyone he faces. I think babalu will get the victory, but Vernon will make him work for it.

I agree, White brings it and doesn't give up to easily. I would be a fun fight to see although like you i have Sobral for the victory.

I will support Vernon White though.

Vernon vs. Babalu is actually a better fight than some might think. I like the guys on the card:

Joe Riggs
Drew Fickett
Ricco Rodriguez
David Loiseau
Mark Kerr

The matchups will probably suck, but at least its some fighters I'm interested in.

Man, this is a pretty stacked card, with b-level fighters.

Babalu
White
Riggs
Kerr
Ricco
The Crow
Drew Fickett

EDIT: Damnit KDS, aright, well Babalu by sub

I might have to check this one out. It looks pretty interesting. I like White and I am still pissed the UFC got rid of Babalu and Loiseau (reason for my name). Btw, am I seeing things clearly or does it say that Loiseau is fighting that scrub Josh Haynes?

If Loiseau loses this fight I may go into hiding...
