It was announced prior to Strikeforce on Wednesday night that if Renato "Babalu" Sobral defeated Robbie Lawler, he would get a shot at the light heavyweight title. The only problem with that is Babalu is close friends with and a training partner of current champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.
Babalu was successful in his fight against Robbie Lawler, picking up a unanimous decision victory. But following the win, he said he won't fight his friend and called for another fight instead.
"I won't never punch and try to hurt my friends, but I would like to ask for a fight, and all the respect that I have, in the beginning of my career I fought Dan Henderson in Japan and lost to him," Babalu said.
