Renato “Babalu” had two fights called off this year. At last he is going to fight at Affliction: “Banned” Jul 6th. He hasn’t fought since his last victory over Rodney Faverus. The new Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt will face Mike Whitehead.
Babalu is training in Gracie Barra, California, and at Josh Barnett Team.
Graciemag.com sat down and talked with the Brazilian fighter:
“I’m thirsty for fighting. I’ve trained since December past to face this guy. He’s too heavy. He was heavyweight and is training with Couture, that is, he’ll be well-trained. I believe in myself. Who fires first wins. This card if it isn’t the best, is one of the ones. It’s bothering and this dispute is great to the sport. Fighters need it.”
