"Babalu" Disgraces the Sport
(sports.yahoo.com)
Wow, was I wrong on the Renato "Babalu" Sobral -David Heath fight. I figured Babalu's recent personal problems would be too much for him to overcome and I thought Heath would defeat him Saturday at UFC 74. Keith Kizer, the executive director of the Nevada Athletic Commisison, said he was going to hold half of Renato "Babalu" Sobral's $50,000 purse pending a review of his actions during his UFC 74 win Saturday over David Heath at Mandalay Bay.

BET series "The Iron Ring" Holds Tryouts
(mma.komikazee.com)
Earlier tryouts in New Jersey and Atlanta had been marred by negative feedback and some questions regarding the overall organization of the event, so it was with some trepidation that a number of fighters returned to make a second impression, and others flew in to Atlanta from far and wide to get a first shot at impressing the judges.

But strangely enough, “The Carpenter” doesn’t feel pressure to even up his UFC record at 2-2 with a win; instead, he’s got that excited feeling that he’s just about to hit a hot streak.
