Bobby Southworth: a chat with the Champ – PRO MMA Exclusive

by:  Matt De La Rosa

I had the opportunity to sit down with Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Bobby Southworth at the world class American Kickboxing Academy to discuss his upcoming title defense with Renato “Babalu” Sobral.

The Strikeforce champ became a household name after participating on the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter. It was Bobby, not Matt Serra, who was the first TUF veteran to obtain championship gold in a major promotion.
