Babalu is the greatest ever. He will beat chuck. The man has come light years from when he lost to chuck. He's switched camps and trainers, and his cardio is amazing.

Win Jeremy Horn IFC Global Domination 9/6/2003
Win Mauricio Rua IFC-Global Domination 9/6/2003
Win Trevor Prangley IFC-Global Domination 9/6/2003

This is a one night tournament. No one fights one nighter's anymore.

I personally don't think he is ready for Chuck and will be TKO'd in the first round just like last time he faught Chuck. Everyone he has beaten in a UFC event has been 2 or more rounds by submissions but Chuck has beaten them first round TKO besides Jeremy Horn of coarse. I think Chuck will win but Renato is definitely a good fighter. His fighting reminds me of Randy Couture sort of how he strategically each round takes them out slowly and slowly until the second or third round they just tap out or get TKO'd.

Are you smokin crack? Babalu is gonna get KTFO. I dont think Chuck is that great of a LHW, but hes gonna put a stamp on Babalu.

That picture is not even Babalu.

That picture is of Renato "Charuto" Verissimo who fought a variety of people and mostly fights for Rumble on the rock.
Lol, Adminmma just copy and pastes biographies then puts titles on them and posts a picture of them lol so he doesn't put time into them and wants to get over with them fast since he has some work to do but oh well. That is an incorrect picture of Babalu and once he said Aleksander Emelianenko was in the UFC but don't criticize and blame him because he is usually quite busy and on the go.

Like everyone else says Babalu will get TKO'd in the first round by Chuck just like last time. I don't think Babalu has improved one bit. I mean it took him two rounds to finally beat an unknown Travis Wiuff :laugh:.

My favourite event. Immense. Babalu was outstanding, 3 quality fighters he had to go through.

Renato "Babalu" Sobral

...Babalu is vastly underrated. Yes Chuck is his Nemesis. Yes Chuck will haunt his dreams forever, but Renato is FAR from done. Look at his record. 10 win streak before UFC 62, and 7 in a row before that. He's only been knocked out twice in his whole career, by 1 man. So in retrospect, Babalu has cleaned house in the LH Division. Funny I don't hear ANYBODY calling out Renato. Tito won't fight him because he knows he will lose. Tito is great at Takedowns...which would play right into Babalu's hands, Tito would get owned on the Mat like a 5 dollar w.h.o.r.e....lol! I think Sobral will do well against the Pride fighters too. Tito has a cardio edge on just about everybody, but no matter how good your cardio is...striking ability & timing will always trump cardio fitness. i.e..Liddell/ Ortiz 1, Liddell/ Sobral 2. Same results. NASTY KO.

I agree with you 100%. Babalu will never beat Chuck Liddell but one day, the UFC Light Heavyweight Division will be his. Babalu is so awesome, I love his subs and hes a pretty good striker.

...Ken Shamrock...thx for the props on Babalu. I agree with you too. Renato has kickboxing experience...2 things: If he works on his striking with some takedown defense, I think who ever Chuck loses the belt to, Renato will be there waiting. Yeah man, Babalu is sick on the mat, and he has heavy hands.
Babalu has an assload of experience all around the world. He's fought in Bare-knuckle tournaments, Vale Tudo competition in Brazil and his first fight in the UFC as a HW, he laid a vicious KO on Brad Kohler.
Go Renato!
