Sadly in the UFC (HW, LHW, and MW is suffering from this right now) it's not "who deserves a championship fight?" It's more "who's the most legitimate challenger?" Babalu hasn't done enough in the UFC to deserve a championship match, but who else in the UFC LHW division deserves it more than him right now? All I know is he deserves it more than Eilers did at Arlovski's belt...
I think Babalu is Chuck's biggest threat in the UFC right now. Of course it aint going to be easy since Chuck has some awesome TD defense and he can pick himself up off the ground with someone on top of him. Hopefully Babalu's TDs are good enough to take Chuck down a few times, if he can then it should be smooth sailing for him after Chuck gasses.
