It’s time to back off Renato “Babalu” Sobral. Let’s call off the dogs and send the firing squad home before we get carried away with fines and punishments.

BJ Penn is my favorite fighter, but they can't do this to Babalu without doing it to BJ. This is bullshit.

At the time he thought he was teaching Heath some respect but he acted on instinct and emotion now that the fights over everything between him and Heath is settled. He realizes he's wrong.

I think he needed this win and now he'll go on another win streak and eventually make it back to the UFC.

this is ******* ridiculous, how come the people that do steriods arent being kicked off too, they are violating the rules unpurpose, same thing that babalu did, he violated the rules...

Sobral is a bad ass. I've seen guys get choked out way worse than that at BJJ tournaments. I'm not saying it was the right thing to do, but come on. As fans we encourage them to kick each others butts, and then get mad when they do? Insanity.

It's a non-issue. If he would have kept it on for a while after Heath passed out then it would have been an issue.
