Bellator 85: Renato “Babalu” Sobral Vs. Mikhail Zayats

Renato “Babalu” Sobral vs. Mikhail Zayats

Round 1: Babalu comes forward, throws a kick to the Russian’s midsection, and they tie up against the cage. Unfortunately, the action grinds to a halt, so referee John McCarthy separates them. Zayats repeatedly tries to land a one-two, but the Brazilian clocks him with a right hand and Zayats again clinches up with him. Another restart, and Babalu lands a few leg-kicks. Then, out of nowhere, Zayats lands a spinning backfist, and Babalu goes into “retreat mode”. The hits just keep on coming though, and Zayats drops him with a left and hammerfists him into oblivion, forcing the ref to step in.
