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.

Babalu has won his last 10 fights - his last 5 wins were submissions. I guarantee he's not the same fighter as he was 3 1/2 years ago when he fought Chuck.

It's also notable that his KO loss to Chuck was his only ever (T)KO loss in 32 pro fights.

So he is 31-1 if I am reading this all correctly and he is fighting Chuck who was his only loss and he has won his last 10 fights since losing to chuck? If that is how it stands this may be a good fight after all

This is nothing more than another Dana White hand picked opponent for Chuck....There's more deadlier fighters out there than this fella....What about a freaking rematch with Ortiz...or Evans....Many fighters deserve a shot at the title.

Actually he's 27-5 - his only KO loss was to Liddell. He's also lost 3 decisions and 1 fight by submission, however he hasn't lost since he fought Liddell back in November 2002.

Sorry if I wasn't clear before.
