    I have seen a few guys with Babalu avs.

    I never got the appeal. He just seems like a guy with some solid skills that never really put it all together. Sure he beat the piss out of David Heath, but he was a jobber and Babalu's dick attitude got him thrown out of the UFC.

    Enlighten me Babalu fans of the cage.

    .

    He has no chance against Gregard.
    Lucky upkick against Jacare :mb:
    Jacare is lucky he was Kd'd by that kick. If not Gregard would have ruined him standing up.

    Watch IFC Global Domination if you get a chance. It was a long time ago now, but that performance won me over. He fought that tournament just after his brother passed away and dedicated it to him.

    He has a damn good record, has been around MMA for a long time. He doesn't talk that much shit where it gets to the point that it is retarded, like Tito. I would put him in my top 10 for favorite fighters.

    Babalu can be a dick, he is kinda a shy person in a way. He was at our christmas party for our gym I think he just likes to keep he training and personal life completely separate.

    I love watching the guy fight, and I always cheer for him. I can't really quantify why I like him, I just do.

    There are plenty of good guys in MMA with skill, why cheer for a jerk off?

    How couldn't you root for him? The guy beat Horn, Prangley, and Shogun in one night the day after his brother was murdered; that type of heart and will is few and far between in MMA.

    he has sick bjj and isnt like every other brazilian who comes off with a good guy persona. He looks/acts like a badass and has a good set of skills to follow
