SOBRAL VS. MOUSASI CONFIRMED FOR AFFLICTION 3

From MMAWeekly.com:

Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Renato “Babalu” Sobral will face Gegard Mousasi at Affliction 3 on Aug. 1 in Anaheim, Calif.

The bout was initially announced by M-1 Global on its website on Monday. MMAWeekly.com subsequently confirmed the bout with Sobral’s manager, Richard Wilner, who said, “It will be a light heavyweight bout, not a catchweight.”

Mousasi had originally planned to fight Vitor Belfort in a catchweight at the event, dubbed “Trilogy,” confirming the bout on the M-1 Global website last week. The bout had apparently been talked about, but Belfort did not want to move up out of his new home at middleweight, while Mousasi has repeatedly stated that he can no longer make the 185-pound limit.
