an image from Wednesday night. I am very proud to have been the photographer to take the legendary Babalu Sobral’s final portrait as a professional mixed martial artist. He is one of the guys I most admired when I first started getting into the sport. Although it may not have ended the way he wanted it to, he at least got to go out on his shield, and was gracious enough to pose for this picture for me immediately after his fight and retirement. Cheers, Babalu!
