Renato 'Babalu' Sobral would sign with Bellator if the money is right (Video)

Then again, he would also re-sign with Strikeforce if the money was right. Or the UFC:

"Maybe. ... If they pay me what I deserve. Yeah, it's a contractual thing (with Strikeforce). I don't have any contract with Strikeforce anymore. (There is no specific organization I'm talking to), not yet. I would like to go anywhere that would pay me what I think I deserve."

Sobral may never return to the Octagon thanks to his refusing to release a choke on David Heath back at UFC 74, and with Strikeforce seemingly on its deathbed, Bellator may prove to be the only option available to him. But will the tournament oriented promotion be interested in the 36-year-old light heavyweight?
