If Renato Sobral has one regret about his final MMA fight, it's that he couldn't make his body do what it used to.

As much as I like Babalu, he probably should've done this a few fights ago.

I met babulu a few years ago. He was kind of a jerk.
That's me saying it nicely.
He was like a year past when he should have retired

My Fav, but dude's chin is gone...he is 37 and would be just an amazing ground coach for any team that picked him up...Blackzilians?!

I never liked Babulu after he wouldn't stop the choke, after the ref broke up the fight, I didn't like Royce Gracie for the same reason so its problly just me.

Goes without saying that I love him but this should have happened a while ago. Too many wars back in the day took its toll

As mentioned he needs to turn coach

His chin stood up pretty well but his ability to stood did not.
