UFC 68: The Uprising from Nationwide Arena in Ohio will be the site for the return of Renato “Babalu” Sobral according to UFC.com. Babalu is making his long awaited return to the octagon after his first round ko loss to Chuck Liddell at UFC 62. Sobral’s opponent for the light heavyweight bout will be Jason Lambert, who is coming off of a ko loss himself in the second round of his fight with Rashad Evans at UFC 63.
This is a very nice addition to an already stacked card. Here is the rumored card so far compliments of mmaweekly:
-Tim Sylvia (#5 Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Randy Couture
-Matt Hughes (#2 Welterweight)* vs. Chris Lytle
-Rich Franklin (#5 Middleweight)* vs. Jason MacDonald
-Renato “Babalu” Sobral (#6 Light Heavyweight)* vs. Jason Lambert
-Jon Fitch (#7 Welterweight)* vs. Luigi Fioravanti
-Mike Swick vs. Yushin Okami
-David Heath vs. Matt Hamill
-Martin Kampmann vs. Drew McFedries
-Assuerio Silva vs. TBA
The Standard for UFC pay per views is 9 fights, which is what is scheduled so far. As it stands right now, the only announcement left is the opponent for Assuerio Silva in his under card match. It looks as though the main card is set in stone, barring any injuries or unforeseen circumstances.
