Renato “Babalu” Sobral has undergone successful surgery on his injured knee which on Wednesday knocked him out of his “Strikeforce at the Mansion 2” bout against Anthony Ruiz.
The former UFC 205-pound contender could return to action by as early as November.
Sobral’s manager, Richard Wilner, confirmed the developments with MMA Junkie on Thursday.
Following a mid-August injury Babalu last week underwent arthroscopic surgeryÂ on his knee to repair a medial meniscus tear.
Strikeforce continues to look for a replacement for Sobral to take on Ruiz on the September 20th card.
