Babalu seems to be going postal these days. First, he was arrested in Florida about a month ago. And now he holds the choke on David Heath for an extra five seconds after tapping him out?

I am surprised the UFC even let him fight after his mishap in Florida. I thought the UFC had rules about letting criminals fight in their organization. If they dont have rules maybe they need to make some.

I think chucked must have knocked something wrong with him. It's been trouble for Babalu ever since.

you guyz are acting like he killed a man.

many fighters have held on the submission and i've seen longer than that.

grow up guyz, they had some "beef", and they took care of it in the octagon.

I think its kinda funny how he gets his career together and then gets his boo'd outta the building and gets fined 25 grand

it wasn't the choke, it was a combonation of things. I like Ricardo Arona who did the same thing once, but held it a lot longer.
Babaloo went on a big win streak, then put on a lame effort vs Chuck and TKO'd by Lambert, then gets arrested, and when he finally wins a fight he does this shit. The sportsmanship aspect doesn't bother me as much as wasting a spot on a PPV b/c I don't imagine we'll see him in the UFC again anytime soon. I just think it's a shame, he's a very entertaining fighter.


*EDIT* - it was a pretty shitty thing to do though.

Apparently this:

"Sobral explained after the fight that he choked Heath unconscious because he felt disrespected by some of his opponents pre-fight comments (Heath wore a shirt showing a Sobral's mugshot from a recent arrest)."

Dude's got some serious personal demons.

However, the choke was wrong, but so was Heath's shirt. Babalu should have found a better way to show his anger. Step on him, taunt him after he stood up, told Joe Rogan Heath was a fag, something other than choking him out. And no! He will not be back with the UFC anytime soon.

I hope the UFC doesn't fire him. I actually couldn't be any less mad at him. If you're going to wear a shirt with his mug shot on it he's going to choke you completely out. Was it right? No, but he didn't lose me as a fan. I might like him even more now that I know he's a complete lunatic.
