I personally think babalu is a better striker then nog. He is just as good on the ground and has amazing cardio. I say babalu.

Lil' Nog doesn't cut any weight to fight at lightheavyweight, Babalu used to fight at Heavyweight in a number of organizations including the UFC.

In Babalu v Lil' Nog at their natural weight I'm giving Babalu a 15 to 20 lb advantage. The weight I have posted is his fight weight from fighting Chuck. He's really up around 230-235 when he's not cutting for a competition.

I've had Sylvia fight like 4 times. I've posted him against every heavyweight contender in PRIDE. He has yet to win. PRIDE has no middleweight division, so it's not really fair to Rich Franklin, who could beat any lighter weight fighter in PRIDE, but I gave him Anderson, even though Silva is a PRIDE welterweight.

I'll keep that in mind, though.

Yeah, if you go to the ground with Fedor and you don't get pounded or submitted then that's pretty incredible.

Pride does too have a middleweight division they dont have a WW. And If Babalu cuts to make LHW that doesnt matter he weighs in at LHW just like everyone Lil Nog fights. So it should definatly be 2 LHWs Babalu vs Lil Nog instead of Babalu vs Nog whose a heavyweight. You talk about weight disadvantages, Babalus to big Nog is worse than Lil Nogs to Babalu.

Their divisions are structured way differently, which has a lot to do with the fact that they use the metric system.

What I'm trying to explain to you is that Babalu has fought at heavyweight, he's actually spent alot of his carreer there. Babalu, from what I've heard, cut 30 lbs in the weeks before the fight to fight Chuck, which means he weighs almost exactly the same as Big Nog without cutting weight. Maybe I should have posted the weight he be fighting at, not the weight at his last fight.
