Jacob Noe To Let Renato Sobral Wither Away Before Finishing Him At Today’s Bellator 96

Jacob Noe felt great when he partnered up with Bellator. He joined the promotion with seven straight wins as he entered their light heavyweight tournament. Then everything came to a crashing halt with a loss.

Noe said he wasn’t prepared mentally in his semifinal loss to Mikhail Zayats. Tonight, Noe has a chance at redemption when he takes on Renato Sobral in a four person tournament.

“If I keep the pressure on him, I think he’ll wither away,” said Noe to MMA Weekly. “I’m in really good shape right now and have a little bit of altitude training and have been learning from better guys, so he’ll definitely run across the best Jacob Noe.”

Sobral, a former UFC title contender, was considered a favorite to win Season 8 but Zayats ended that from happening. He’s currently 37-10 as he looks for his first Bellator win.

They are on the main card of Bellator 96, which emanates from the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, OK.
