According to a UFC 75 Conference call, Dana White has stated that Renato “Babalu” Sobral has been cut from his current contract with the UFC.

White said that Babalu has been cut from his contract because of the episode this past weekend at UFC 74. He said if Babalu had held onto a leg or arm – rather than a choke – extra long that the results could have been a lot worse.

White said “Babalu” has been cut from his contract but won’t rule out having him in the organization in the future. “I never say never,” he said.

White said Sobral knows he’s been cut from the organization and that he’s sure that he’s not happy about it. White said that despite the tone of past interviews, he was always planning to cut Babalu from the organization.

I don’t Agree with Dana White, why cut him, he is a good fighter who is fun to watch. What he did was wrong, but so is taking steroids. Steroids cheat your opponent as well as the fans, but the UFC Welcomes them back with open arms saying “It’s the Athletic Commissions that must punish the fighter”.
