Babalu On Fighting Tito Ortiz, "I’d Make His Mom Cry Forever"— Fightline Radio Ep. 11

Fightline Radio Episode 11

If you missed it, last night on Fightline Radio’s “The Best Damn MMA Show On The Air”, we welcomed MMA tough guys Renato “Babalu” Sobral and Bobby Southworth.

Southworth will defend his StrikeForce light heavyweight title against Babalu on Nov. 21st in San Jose.

Highlights of Show:

-When asked how he thought he’d fare against Tito Ortiz- if the two ever get to square off, Babalu, threw a little smack talk Tito’s way,

“I’d make his mom cry forever!”

-Babalu also talked about Randy Couture’s chances against Brock Lesner. When asked what he would do against Brock, Babalu laughed and didn’t seem to be too anxious to face him,

“I don’t know, that’s kind of hard. He’s too big, he might hurt me.”

-Bobby Southworth joined us an hour into the show, and was all business. He revealed that his parents are pacifists and didn’t see him fight for the first few years of his career.

-Bobby also talked about his strategy for facing Babalu, what makes a good MMA promotion and his experience on TUF 1.

– To top off a fighter full show, we welcomed all-american wrestler Chris Canale. Canale will be fighting this Friday at WCF 5 in Wilmington, Mass.

-Canale talked about being a young fighter in the Northeast and what it was like training at Xtreme Couture.

-He is also a former college teammate of Josh Hendricks (Gabriel Gonzaga’s next opponent at UFC 91). Canale filled us in on Hendricks skills and predicted that anyone who thinks Gonzaga is going to walk through him is in for a big surprise.

-Finally, hosts Carl “2 Ice” Shimkin and Matthew Brothers broke down UFC 91 like only they can.

-The major difference in their predictions centered around the Kenny Florian/Joe Stevenson battle.
