It seems as though we've been talking about Renato Sobral vs. Gegard Mousasi for quite some time now. Of course, both men were supposed to fight on the ill-fated "Affliction: Trilogy" card. Instead, the bout was moved to this Saturday's Strikeforce event on Showtime, where "Babalu" will defend his light heavyweight title against the up-and-coming Mousasi.

I wouldn't mind seeing that fight I just hope it goes to the ground and we get to see 2 of the best try to break each others arm.

Fedor would probably win a bit more decisively but it would be a helluva lot better than watching Fedor fight Ricco Rodriguez.

I don't even think babalu's gonna successfully defend his title... he should be focusing more on his defense attempt than his "eventual" fight vs Fedor.

I'm sure if you lost to Fedor when he was considered a nobody, now that he's 20 times better than he was you're probably not going to do so well.

Worry about the rematch with Mousassi after he takes your belt lol.

Ughhh....you've got to be kidding me. I am obviously a huge Babalu fan and I full blown cringed when I saw this! I think he will have a hard time with Gegard, but I see him pulling off a victory. Fedor though would KO Babalu in the first. "And the truth shall set you free"
