BABALU SOBRAL vs. CHUCK LIDDELL for Light-Heavyweight Title!

    Wed, 2006-02-15 20:47 — Bevois

    First I want to give a big congrats to Gracie Barra fighter Renato "Babalu" Sobral for choking out Mike Van Arsdale, at UFC 57, with a rear-naked choke at 2:21 of Round 1.

    In my opinion, the next obvious fight for Babalu should be a rematch against Chuck "Iceman" Liddell for the Light-Heavyweight UFC Championship. Both of these guys have been on a tear and have posted very impressive winning streaks, since the last time they fought. Babalu has also made tremendous strides since joining the Gracie Barra Combat Team and is a completely different fighter than the one Chuck caught with a head-kick in their first meeting.

    At UFC 57, Chuck retained his UFC Light-Heavyweight title by TKO'ing Randy Couture and Babalu increased his winning streak to 10-0 which includes wins over Trevor Prangley, Shogun Rua, and Jeremy Horn all in one night in the Mile High City, as well as five consecutive submission victories with three taking place inside the UFC octagon. I think a rematch between Babalu and Iceman is the next obvious step Dana White needs to take in the Light-Heavyweight division!

    Babalu will be facing Marvin 'the Beastman' Eastman at UFC 60. With the rumor being the Chuck might face Rampage now that his contract is up with Pride.

    While I agree that Babalu should demolish Eastman, I can't agree with you on the outcome of Liddell vs. Rampage. Rampage has not been then same fighter since their first fight. He got owned be Vanderlei Silva a couple of times and then last weekend had trouble with a korean judo guy he was supposed to walk over. Liddell, however, has been on a tear. He's beating everybody convincingly. Babalu and Chuck should both get past their respective rumored opponents and meet towards the end of this year.

    I think Babalu is a good well rounded fighter but I think the Iceman will win.

    We need a UFC vs Pride match up.
