Babalu Willing To Give Up Title Shot For Bout With Dan Henderson

Quote:
While most employees would be pleased to hear their boss offer them a shot at the golden ticket if they perform, Renato "Babalu" Sobral offered a surprising answer when asked if he would like a title shot after defeating Robbie Lawler tonight to become the number one contender for the light heavyweight championship, held by Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.

Therein lies the problem for Babalu, as he often perfects his MMA skills at Mark Munoz's Reign Training Center in Lake Forrest, CA – the same facility Lawal frequents. RTC also served as King Mo's primary gym in his preparation for Mousasi, with Babalu actively participating in his training camp.

After defeating Robbie Lawler via unanimous decision to become the top contender for Lawal's title at Strikeforce: Los Angeles tonight, Babalu stated that he didn't want to fight his friend and asked for a rematch with Dan Henderson. Henderson won their first outing in 2000 via split decision.

It remains to be seen if Strikeforce will grant Babalu a rematch with Henderson, or if they will work overtime to try to convince Babalu and Lawal to face each other.

Thanks to Tim Ngo for contributing to this article.

wait santos just beat zaromskis who came off a title fight with diaz and tko'd him. i think you have to give him more credit than that. the guy opened my eyes and he proved hes not just some grappler.

as far as the qoute, i think a rematch would be very interesting at this point



JUST SCRAP

I still think Hendo would wreck Bobalu's sh*t but it could be one of the better Strikeforce fights.

Have to agree with the consensus, Babalu has no chance against Hendo. Standing or on the ground.

Saying Babalu has no chance against anyone at 185/205 on the ground is an ignorant statement at best.

Hendo has only been submitted by Team Nogueira fighters. Babalu's jitz is no where near this caliber. Hendo would destroy Babalu in guard without needing to pass. Babalu is not going to submit Hendo. Period.

I don't think Babalu can hump Hendo for 3 rounds. Henderson knew that it was possible that he would be "humped to death".

Babalu's BJJ is similar to Lil Nog's and most probably better than Anderson's, although we rarely get to see the Spider's. Babalu could choke out Hendo, or control him from the top. Babalu's GNP is far nastier than Shield's. Check out the Sinosic and Heath fights. Saying Babalu's BJJ is "nowhere near" Lil Nog's and Anderson's is laughable. Babs has a very active guard also.
