Mike is a super cool guy. I have no doubt he will be prepared for this fight. I know Babalu is gonna be ready, but Iam gonna go with the hometown boy for this one.

I genuinely don't like either one of these guys. Remember when Whitehead quit on TUF. I can't get over that. As for Babalu, I mean come on. The guy is most famous for getting KO'd by Chuck. All that being said, I'm taking Whitehead by KO.

Whitehead is one of my favorites. I think hes really underrated but Babalu is always dangerous. Not sure who im going to pick in this one yet. Going to have to look at some old fights first.

How about Babalu being known for having a impressive record against impressive fighters...not to mention handing Shogun his first professional loss.

Whitehead never quit on the show he lost to Rashad and Rashad has not done to bad for himself in the UFC. And (I'm not trying to make excuses for him) he had staff; I would like to see anyone go and fight with staff. Whitehead didn't mention it cause he did not want to bow out of the fight.

Yeah Mike did not quit on the show. It is not him to quit. Check out this article from a while back. This is what kind of guy he is.

He went through the fight, lost a three round decision, and decided to visit a doctor the day after the bout. The conversation went something like this:

“What do you do for a living?” asked the doctor.

“I’m a professional fighter,” Whitehead replied.

“When was your last fight?”

“Last night.”

“Did you pass out?”

“No.”

“That’s amazing because there’s so much infection going through your veins right now that I don’t see how your veins are carrying oxygen to your brain along with all this infection.”
