But... if two world class wrestlers (Tito and Randy) had so much trouble getting the current version of Chuck to the ground, I'm not sure Babalou will fare any better. Horn did the best of anyone recently, and his submissions are easily as good as Babalou's, but he ended up having to find ways to counter standing up (leg kicks) while taking a ton of punishment.
While Babalou is dangerous standing up, I can't see favoring him in a stand up fight against one of the best MMA counter-punchers in the world today.
