How is Babalu a threat. Now everyone on this forum thinks Babalu is going to win for some bizarre reason. Chuck is a worst night mare for fighters like Babalu. Chuck hasn't lost to submission since 1999 and he didn't tap, the ref stopped it. Plus he has the best take down defense so Babalu is screwed. Chuck will strike him and own him. However with Ortiz and Silva it will be less ownage infact I think Ortiz can beat Chuck.

From reading all these news reports (if you wanna call 'em that) lately, that Dana White is skeptical on actually having Chuck/Wandy happen....I wouldn't be suprised to see Liddell vs. Ortiz on the card that was advertised originally for Chuck & Wandy.

If Tito keeps training like a beast - and stays injury free....he'll probably be the biggest threat to Chuck. If they hook it up again...and Tito can get him down, control him on the ground & impose more of his will on Liddell - then we very well may see a new LHW champ. We'll see how it all plays out in the next couple months.

I realy don't understand how babalu would be able to win against chuck, nor do I understand why people think babalu is a big threath.
As to Tito and Wanderlei, ther you got some problems for chuck, but I don't realy know who has the best chanse against chuck, becaus I don't know how good wanderlei is in UFC (after all some of chute box's trademark atacks are not allowed in UFC, and I stil wonder if he'll remember to throw the elbowes).

but if wanderlei vs chuck happen, then its gonne be a damn good fight

they all are good fighters.

but the fact of the matter is sobral is the biggest threat. i belive he will win but even if you dont think he can hes the first one in line to fight him.

who ever the ufc puts against him is the biggest threat at that time.

and i think tito is next in line. i heard dont know if its correct but tito signed a 3 fight contract and if he wins the first 2 he gets a title shot. just what i heard dont know for sure. so dont get a hiped up when im wrong

babalu has beat some of the best. Do a comparrison chuck couldn't beat horn, horn ended up quiting but he couldn't beat him. Babalu did. Babalu is good and has won many fight's. I've seen knee bars and arm bars while the opponent is standing so babalu doesn't have to take him down. I don't care if chuck hasn't been submited babalu is way better then the last time he beat rua.

I don't see how people say Tito is on the way up. He looked like crap again Griffin, even though many will say he was injured blah blah, he still looked like crap. Injuries are part of the game. Against Ken, he looked good, but that didn't take much. I do think it would be a good fight though

How can you sau Babalu is not a threat then saying Ortiz is?, Ortiz said he would fight his own fight next time they met "meaning ground and pound and not standing" as he was pummeled on his feet. Babalu is as good as Ortiz if not better with submissions his stand up is better than Ortiz, your statement contradicts itself mate.

yea I was wondering the same... Babalu at least went the distance with Fedor.. I do not think Tito could last half that long..
