According to Chuck's book Dana said he was next in line, but wanted him to wait for Tito to fight Ken Shamrock so he'd be next in line. Chuck didn't want to wait around so he fought Babalu at the same PPV as the Tito Ken fight and this was supposed to lead into Tito vs. Chuck, but Tito kept putting it off, so to stay fresh Chuck accepted a fight against Couture, and Couture won, which pushed Chuck out of the title picture. Couture went on to beat Tito to win the title, then Chuck went on to beat Overeem and lose to Rampage. Then Tito started to call Chuck out and finally they fought.
