Renato “Babalu” Sobral facs Dan Henderson on December 4 at Strikeforce in St. Louis. The Gracie Barra black belt is featured in GRACIEMAG 162, in bookstores and academies across the planet.
In the can’t-miss article by Deb Blyth, the fighter comments on a period of depression, when he was sidelined from the cages and rings for a year, a time where he was filled with doubts as to whether to carry on in his career.
“I have a dark side and a light side, like everybody. I’m honest about mine. When I get in the ring, I want to destroy my opponent,” he declares.
“Was I doing the right thing? Is it right or wrong to fight?” he would question himself.
Now the black belt is comfortable with his dark and light sides; a warning to Henderson, since as he says, Babalu will try to destroy him in the cage.
