On Tuesday Bablu earned his black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr.
Hard to believe he was only a brown belt up until Tuesday.

Here is the article

i wont lie. i assumed as well. good for babalu. i hope he comes back to the ufc. holding that choke was no different than anything royce gracie did and no different than bj penn vs pulver 2

Damn I hope they bring him back....it wasn't as bad as the steriods fiasco, and he has always been in exciting fights...besides with the HW div fading you may as well swell up the ranks in the other divisions to make up for it. WAR BABALU!!!!

As previously mentioned if you want to call Babalu a shmuck, then call Bj Penn a schmuck, and don't even try and defend BJ, he held onto to that choke for revenge, no coincidence

I want to see him back in the UFC so bad, especially since Chuck no longer has the belt (Chuck is kryptonite to fighters with Babalu's style.) He can submit anyone in that division if the fight goes to the ground.

I hope he gets a win or two, Then comes back to the UFC, Babalu is a good fighter to watch, Just not against Liddell!

Well done Renato

I just always assumed that with his BJJ skills (like many others) that he was a black belt already
