Yeah, definitely a pro-fight.

Sherdog isn't comprehensive, unfortunately. fcfighter.brinkster.net probably features it.

Definitely an MMA fight; Babalu thought he got jilted and wanted revenge.

There was a lengthy post on here at one point in time or another that had all the details, but if I'm not mistaken there was a whole lot wrong with the whole ordeal.

Hitman Fights, the company that promoted the event, booked it as a pro wrestling show to skirt regulations and fees I guess, but in order to be pro wrestling, they had to disclose the winners previously. Obviously, not every predisclosed winner won, as the fights weren't actually fixed. Anywho, the "booked" Sonnen as the winner if I'm not mistaken.

It gets better from there. Babalu was infromed prior to the fight it was only gonna be a 2 round fight. They fought two rounds, he went back to his corner, his corner took his gloves off, and they then said there was a third round and Sonnen won by forfeit.

Needless to say, I don't think the beef was all on Chael, but Babalu at least held him partially responsible, as it would seem to alot of people.

I'll try and find the official story and give this a proper source.

Have you ever seen something you aren't supposed to laugh at, but do anyway? Mine was when Sonnen was caught in the heel hook. I know it must have hurt like hell but he screamed like a dying cat and it was funny as hell. However, I was in relief his knee was OK. But whenever I watch that fight, it cracks me up. lol

...this isn't really an answer to the question.. But it is pretty obviously that Sonnen is a jerk. In nearly every interview I've seen with the guy, he's been very disrespectful and arrogant. I remember him cutting up Don Frye...and even saying that he doesn't practice jujuitsu becuse it is 'gay'..b/c he doesn't like beign between another man's legs. They guy is a freaking idiot and I hope he gets his face smashed.
