VIDEO: Babalu Sobral pissed off about Promoters, Saying 'No Money, No Babalu.'

Renato "Babalu" Sobral has not fought since 2010 and he is angry. In an interview with MMA Prime (Aaron Tru), Babalu opens up about the exasperating tumult that the the fight game has brought him in the past few months alone.

First, Babalu talks about a scheduled fight for Instinct MMA in Canada in late December that has been postponed four separate times due to opponent injury and lack of a replacement fighter. As of right now, Sobral says that the early June fight will not happen due to another opponent injury and wishes his opponent the best of luck with the recovery before going on to verbally lambast the promoter.

Babalu calls the promoter "unprofessional", "piece of crap" and that "they shouldn't be allowed to promote MMA again."

In the midst of that rant, Babalu states that his job as a fighter is to train and prepare for a fight and the job of a promoter is to make sure a fight goes on and to promote the event. Both have costs, but for the fighter, it is harder to sustain a true training regimen all these months without a payday of some kind.

Continuing the emotional talk, Sobral talks about being scheduled to fight Ikuhisa Minowa at ONE FC 3 last March 31. However, when he arrived in Singapore weeks earlier to promote the fight, ONE FC suddenly changed his opponent AND weightclass without notice or explanation. From fighting Minowa at 205 lbs, Sobral was being asked to fight Melvin Manhoef at 185 lbs. Sobral makes it a point of emphasis to highlight his 15 year career of fighting anyone put before him at this point.

Sobral says that ONE FC responded to his refusal to sign the contract by calling it "TUF Brazil obligations". Further clouding the issue is the fact that Minowa fought a week after the scheduled ONE FC bout on April 7 for Super Fight League against Alexander Shlemenko.

The timing of this video is Interesting as Babalu is scheduled to headline ONE FC 4 against Tatsuya Mizuno. Within the video, Sobral also says that he is not going to fly in to promote the fight and ends with the reminder to promoters out there that if things like this happen, he can stay at home with his gym and teach instead of fighting for unstable or unreliable organizations. The video ends with the catchy "No money, no Babalu." quote.

Babalu has always been a highly emotional fighter and his 36-9 record is filled with legends of the game. His IFC battles on September 6, 2003 will forever stand in MMA history as the night Babalu could not lose.

Too bad we couldn't get a Seraldo Babalu moment from Tito in there to put it over the top...

VIDEO: PALHARES CONTEMPLATES CHANGING HIS GAME FOLLOWING BELCHER LOSS

A few days ago, Rousimar ‘Toquinho’ Palhares was widely considered nigh-on unbeatable and close to a middleweight title shot, with his reputation for severely damaging opponent’s knee joints meaning that there were plenty of UFC middleweights who didn’t want to be matched with him.

But Alan Belcher not only accepted the fight, he sought it out, and when he got in there with him he happily accepted the ground fight and went jits for jits with Palhares. The end result was astonishing - Belcher escaped several leglock attempts, tried a ‘twister’ crank of his own, then took top position and battered Palhares to a TKO win.

Suddenly Palhares has had his aura dimmed and he possibly has to start looking at making his game less predictable. While he was coming to terms with this, he was visited by Vinny the Chin, who has watched both Ali G and Bloodstain Lane and decided to cross the two.

Despite the somewhat hackneyed approach, the interview is actually a good one and pretty revealing in places. Palhares isn’t usually a big talker but he comes out of his shell a bit, possibly shocked into speech by the Jersey Shore escapee holding the microphone:
