Anytime two of my favorite fighters are on the same card Babalu and Lawler it makes me very happy. Look

Feijao is going to knock Babalu into retirement. Hes just not as well known, he might even be an underdog when he shouldnt be. You'll probably see him in the UFC sooner or later.

Babalu better bring his A game to this fight. Feijao is no joke and will be making waves in the LHW division very soon.

The Northwest plans were presumed off when the "ShoMMA" card aka the Secondary event for May was coming together.

I am so pissed but it is also kind of nice if they just pushed it off, then I have time to get some money for the good $100 seats

I might be tempted to go to this event, with it being close.

And having babalu and lawler on the card.

I like what I've seen form Feijao too, but how can you say he's going to knock Sobral into retirement? Babalu's fought the toughest guys around in his carreer... From Hendo to Fedor to Chuck to Shogun, he's fought a who's who list of premier MMA fighters...

Calvancante hasn't fought anyone even close to Babalu's caliber in his carreer, and this is a big step up for him... I hope he fares well, but I wouldn't be so quick to write off the old vet against the young up and comer

I got the retirement thing from Babalu's last couple of interviews saying hes near the end of his career and perhaps a loss brutal or not might be the end but I hope not its just what Babalu has been saying. I do agree good matchup tho, its either a coming out party or validation for the vet.
