    When will he get a another chance at Lidell's title?

    Now that 'Captain America' is retired, there is nobody else in the division more talented than he is.

    I think Tito deserves a shot before him

    Why?

    Tito's was gone for quite some time, all the while Babalu was racking up wins against quality opponents!

    tito probably will be sidelined for awhile with his torn ACL and his fractured fibula. besides, he just made his return to the cage, so he has to re-establish himself

    In the last 6 years, Tito's only losses were to Randy and Chuck, the best 2 in the division. Now that Randy retired I would assume that Tito's skills should be put to the test to see where he is at.

    KNOCK KNOCK! LOL!
    I think UFC is afraid to have their most popular title in the hands of a non american who speaks broken english at the height of their popularity.
     
  8. I don't think Babalu has much of a shot against Chuck but we'll see

    I think Babalu is still improving his game, whereas Chuck has pretty much maxed out his game. Granted, Chuck can knock out anyone and has a great sprawl...but if Babalu can get him down, he is in big trouble...BIG!

    Well, they'll REALLY be hurting when GSP takes the title from Hughes, Arlovski regains his belt, and Babalu beats Chuck then...

    Chuck's ground game isn't to be underestimated either, but I agree that Babalu will have the best chance against him there. My friend gave me this dvd ultimate knockouts 3 last year, and babalu vs chuck is on it... I just remember him getting kicked in the head lol.

    i compare this fight to arona vs. wandy. the gap is probably larger, but still it's a battle of styles
