No way does the post #1 contender for the 205 div not fight in the Octagon again. He'll get someone else, I think the only person in the UFC other than Chuck that would give him a hard time is Tito, Forest maybe. But anyone else he will dominate.

Forrest might be a bit of a stretch as well, but i think it would be a pretty good fight

Babalu just prolly needs some time off then get back into it again, to be honest i cant see anyone beating chuck right now. Im sure Babalu will be back....but he is better than almost all UFC fighters other than , well.....Chuck.

He is a top guy and a great MMA fighter, maybe go to PRIDE even....but no i think he will be back but not for 3-4 UFC's yet.

Babalu will have to fight forrest. That's the only smart thing. Or forrest fight's rhashed and the winner fight's babalu. Either way he isn't done. He still is a very good fighter.

Maybe do what they did with Tito and put Babalu up against a former TUF guy? Maybe even a Forrest Griffin, a Michael Bisping, or for an easy win, Stephan Bonnar lol. Its interesting to see whats gonna happen with him from here, but mark my word I have a feeling Babalu will hold the LHW title one day (granted he doesnt have to go through Chuck to get it) haha
The bread line!!lol

The sad thing is, if chuck is smart he'll go out on top. Retire while the champ.

Sooner or later he will get caught, it always happen.

As for Sobral, the guy is pretty good. Has a great record, but he cant get past chuck liddell so what can he do Nobody wants to be 2nd place their whole life.

I'd like to see him fight another kickboxer/jiu jitsu fighter and that'd be Michael Bisping.

I don't think it will happen because Mike's only fought 1 official fight in the UFC and it was against a fat sloppy windmill fighter (for those that don't know windmilling is when you put your head down and just throw your arms around) who got lucky by not getting submited by jesse forbes who sucks even more then he does.

Anyways i hope sobral is back, i really would hate for him to go out with a naisty 0-2 record against chuck liddell. I personally think he'll fight Forrest Griffen just because of griffen's win, and griffen just fought tito a while back. So thats my best guest.

Or maybe even someone like Rashad Evans? who knows.

I do know one thing, UFC will be trying to match Evans up with someone that has never gone to decision in a fight. I know Lambert is a rumor going around for rashads next fight.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
