It's official folks Babalu VS Feijao is on for June 6th in St. Louis.
This fight will be on the same card as Jake Shields VS Robbie Lawler. Also on the card is Phil Baroni VS Joe Riggs.
Damn I'm loving the way this one is shaping up already. This is a five round title fight.
In addition to the Lawler vs. Shields matchup, a Strikeforce light heavyweight title defense by Renato “Babalu” Sobral vs. Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante has been added to the card as well.
Sobral, 32-7, won the promotion’s 205 pound crown from Bobby Southworth this past November during “Strikeforce: Destruction” after a doctor stopped the fight following the first round due to a cut. The former UFC veteran last competed in January during Affliction and M-1’s “Day of Reckoning.” Facing Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Sobral submitted the former PRIDE star with a Brabo choke submission at 2:36 of round 2.
For those of you that have never seen Rafael Feijao fight you're in for a treat. He's Anderson Silva's training partner.
He also trains with big and little Nog. This has serious FOTN potential. Babalu is in for his toughest fight in years. Feijao is in for the toughest test of his carreer.
