For the first time in nearly 9 years, Renato Sobral is Japan-bound. The former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion and UFC contender has signed a multi-fight contract with DREAM and will participate in the promotion's upcoming light heavyweight tournament, which is set to begin May 30 at DREAM.15. Sobral apparently is still under contract to Strikeforce but the promotion gave him the OK to sign the DREAM contract and he'll probably return to SF later this year. Sobral last fought in Japan in summer 2001, when he lost in RINGS to Fedor.

It makes me deeply sad everytime I see an article of Babalu signing with some organization that isn't the UFC.

I've always liked Renato Sobral. I really wish he was still in the UFC so I could see him fight more often. Hopefully he does well in DREAM.

Babalu should be able to whoop most of the competition Dream throws at him. I would really like to see him get revenge on Mousasi...if that is possible.

I would love for Babalu to make a solid comeback, DREAM is just the place to do it too! I just don't think he has the chin for the hard hitting LHWs anymore....I wish he would get in good shape and fight at MW....that would be the ideal wieght for him IMO.
