Babalu "If I lose again I'm Done"
(ufc.com)
For some fighters, the Octagon is the only place where they can truly find peace. No matter what happens in their lives before the bell rings, whatever drama they’re dealing with outside the cage, a fight is a fight and everything else takes a back seat for those 15 or 25 minutes or less. But for Renato ‘Babalu’ Sobral, the UFC’s Octagon has been anything but a sanctuary for him in his last two fights, as he was stopped in the first round by Chuck Liddell last August, and then suffered a second straight defeat when Jason Lambert knocked him out in the second round at UFC 68 in March. On August 25th, he will try to avoid a third loss in a row when he takes on David Heath at UFC 74 in perhaps the most pivotal bout of his eight year career. “It’s a very important fight because I have to step away from my losses and I have to come back stronger,” said Sobral. “I’ve lost twice, and if I lose again, I’m pretty much done. It’s almost like a title shot.”
