Babalu would be a top 5 MW. His wrestling is good, as is his BJJ. Chuck Liddell was a total nightmare match-up for him, and Liddell ain't cutting to 185. I'd like to see Babalu return to the UFC.
Yushin has excellent submission defense so I really don't think Babalu's Jiu Jitsu will be too much of a factor. I think Yushin would take Babalu down with his strength + wrestling and dominate from top position. Yushin Okami has a really good top game so I think he would win via Ground n' Pound.
