Renato Babalu Sobral says he will submit Chael Sonnen at Metamoris 6 in under 10 minutes and even predicted the finish.
Speaking via MMAFighting.com Sobral tells us how he was surprised to be matched up with Sonnen but is excited about the prospect of fighting him again and he also predicts a triangle choke finish:
“I wasn’t expecting that (the match up with Sonnen), but I’m in. I’m not a 20-year-old anymore, Sonnen is from the same generation, and I think it’s going to be cool to compete against him. (Metamoris’ rules are) interesting because you don’t have to worry about scoring points and stuff like that, you only have to worry about finishing the match and entertaining the fans. He (Sonnen) exposes himself more in MMA. But if he makes a mistake, I’ll tap him with a triangle choke,” he said. “I’ll use my entire arsenal, everything I can, to tap him. I think Sonnen will come in strong and try that guillotine, one of his best attacks, but I don’t see him catching me, submitting me. I will submit him in less than 10 minutes.”
Sobral and Sonnen have fought once before in a 2005 MMA bout with Sobral finishing Sonnen in the third round via triangle choke. Will history repeat itself or will the American Gangster get his revenge. Find out on May 9th when Metamoris returns.
