The bottom line is Babalu choked. And I like Babalu a lot
This loss should not take away from how good Babalu is, he is an excellent fighter and he has nothing to be ashamed of. However you want to look at it Chuck got the job done. Lets not forget that a big part of fighting is the mental state one is in. Babalu made a mistake (uncharactaristic of how good he is) and Chuck took advantage of it. Chuck did what a champion is supposed to do and he capitalized on his opponents mistake. I'm not sure why any of his opponents charge in punching when they fight him, don't they watch the reruns of Unleashed where there are highlights of Chuck knocking out his opponents who charge in?
