It is very possible that Renato Sobral will meet Silva if he beats Chuck Liddell. If this happens, can Babalu beat Silva?:dunno:
No. Even if Sobral beats Chuck, which is pretty unlikely considering how good his takedown defense has been recently, he'll win because Chuck is an unrestrained brute. Whenever Chuck loses it's because he can't control himself, because he sees no need to.

Wanderlei is an entirely diffent kind of striker. He's always focused, always calm, cool and collected. Wandy is way tougher for sobral because he doesn't swing for the fences like Chuck. Granted, Wandy's takedown defense isn't as good as Chuck's, but he'd hit Babalu after every takedown attempt.

Chuck can be beat babalu in the first round, but he can also beat him any other time. Wandy would beat him in the second or third, after Sobral has been punched in the face sufficiently, he would finish it.

sobrals strenght is on the ground, chuck got legeandary takedown defence...
Chuck is sobrals nightmare opponent, I strongly belive that chuck will win this fight.
This is really the best way to look at Liddell/Sobral. Randleman has way better takedowns then Sobral, so did Couture, and neither of those two guys were really able to take Chuck to the ground. The only person who can really do that is Rampage.

I think Silva/Sobral and Silva/Liddell are both more fun to watch as well as next to impossible to call. Silva can be taken down so Renato actually has a chance and Chuck v Wanderlei is gonna be a awesome.
