I'm a big Sobral fan, and what did last night has cost him no respect from me. Im just bummed that he didn't handle it outside of the cage(Preferably in a non violent manner, though I cheered my ass off for Renato after he caught the choke) where he wasn't going to potentially hurt his career. That said Heath got off light, I'm sure many fighters would have done much worse if Heath pulled what he did to Renato on them. Especially the racist BS (calling him a monkey etc. making digs at his Brazilian heritage) off camera after the weigh-ins. You ask me the moron got at least what he deserved, and hopefully learned to show mutual respect to the other guys out there doing what he does, regardless of whether he likes them or not.
Why is it people like you and Renato think its ok to risk the legitamacy of the sport, and the safety of another fighter all in the name of teaching someone a lesson? I really trully hope you are not an adult. Hell even kids know that two wrongs don't make a right. Regardless of Heath's behavior, it is not Renatos right or responsibility to take matters into his own hands and damage the integrity of the sport for his own personal beliefs. Make no mistakes, Dana has already stated that Renato will be reprimanded for his actions. I really hope that Renato gets suspended from fighting for at least 9 months.
Hey pal, no need to attack me, I just made a very opinionated post, something you, me and everyone else does on here everyday. I agree that babalu should be reprimanded and like my post said, had you bothered to read it clearly, I would have much preferred for him to handle it nonviolently. I just don't blame him for reacting how he did, brazilians are on average very proud and headstrong people. If you go attacking their heritage, calling them names etc. They might just hit you. Heck, a lot of people would in a moment of weakness and lack of judgement. I'm still a fan of his fights and always will be. Just let the guy take his lumps and get on with his career. I mean, fan or not you can't deny the fact that there are some very intriguing new matchups for him in the division.
