Babalu vs. Sokoudjou at Affliction: Day of Reckoning

Two light heavyweight fighters fired by the UFC will square off at Affliction: Day of Reckoning.   Newly crowned Strikeforce light heavyweight champ Renato “Babalu” Sobral will square off against recently released Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.  Both of these guys are generally considered top 20 205ers in the world. 

Sokoudjou gained fame for his back to back knockouts of Ricardo Arona and Antonio Rogeri Nogueira in the last days of PRIDE.  That earned him a stint in the UFC where he went 1-2.  Albeit, Sokoudjou’s losses came to Lyoto Machida and Luis Cane. 

Anyways, should be a fairly good fight.  This should be a fight that Babalu will want to take to the ground as Sokoudjou has shown ZERO ground ability.
