Babalu had just got done with a failed bid at the UFC light-heavyweight title against Chuck Liddell when he was set to face David Heath. Heath had made some less than complementary remarks about Sobral prior to the fight, and when Babalu locked in an anaconda choke during the fight, he held on a few seconds too long. Not only did he hold on, but he also admitted to doing it on purpose as a punishment. That would be the last time he would fight in the UFC. Photo Credit: MMAWeekly
