Affliction Entertainment on Thursday announced that Renato "Babalu" Sobral will face Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou at the promotion's "Day of Reckoning" event on Jan. 24 in Anaheim, Calif.

Babalu is coming off of his fourth straight victory, a win over Bobby Southworth that crowned him the new Strikeforce light heavyweight champion. The fight will be his second start for Affliction, having defeated Mike Whitehead as part of the promotion's debut in July.

It will be Sokoudjou's debut for Affliction following a disappointing attempt to break into the Ultimate Fighting Championship's light heavyweight ranks. After knocking out two Top 10 opponents while fighting for Pride Fighting Championships, Sokoudjou went 1-2 during his UFC tenure.

After Day of Reckoning was rescheduled from an October date in Las Vegas, Babalu was being matched against No. 3 ranked middleweight Matt Lindland at a catch weight. After further consideration by the promotion and Babalu's camp, however, Lindland was put back into his original Day of Reckoning match-up against Vitor Belfort, making it possible for Babalu to be paired at his natural weight of 205 pounds with Sokoudjou.

I see soko losing again :hs:

fuck that, babalu's stand up is terrible. and his wrestling is meh. Babalu cant take the beating that Cane just took, nor can he strike like Cane.

Soko will rise to mediocrity again by dismantling babalu in 28 seconds.

his stand up is shitty, but i think his wrestling is better than people give him credit for. he placed pretty high at pan ams and was a wrestler first before anything else. i guess he just hasn't showed it that much in MMA. :dunno:
