GIF: Babalu Sobral shoves referee after TKO loss to Jacob Noe at Bellator 96


Former UFC light heavyweight Renato Sobral was rather unhappy with referee Kerry Hatley following a third-round technical knockout loss at Bellator 96 last night (June 19, 2013) on Spike TV (results here). "Babalu" (via Zombie Prophet) was socked and rocked -- but not on the canvas -- and was probably waved off to save him from further damage. He let the veteran man in black know what he thought of the early stoppage with a two-handed shove, but will likely escape repercussions after calling it a career (details here). Maybe in his punch-drunk stupor, the Brazilian mistook the referee for Steve Mazzagatti?
