Video: Babalu promises Asian MMA fans 'one of the most exciting nights of their lives' at ONE FC 4

"Fighting is my life, I have been raised all my life inside this sport. I have been training since I was six years old. When I was a little kid I started training judo, muay thai and wrestling. Fighting, it doesn't get old for me. When I walk into the ring, I will feel alive. Just want to beat up, just want to fight. I'm very excited about my first fight in ONE FC. My fans in Asia are going to have one of the most exciting nights you can have in your life. I can't wait."

Sounds like former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Renato Sobral has something special in store for Asian mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who check out his June 23 fight against former DREAM boy Tatsuya Mizuno at the ONE FC 4: "Destiny of Warriors" event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. "Babalu" (36-9) hasn't competed since a thunderous knockout loss to Dan Henderson back in Dec. 2010. Anyone think the 36-year-old Brazilian submission specialist still has what it takes to stay competitive in today's fight game?
