If Babalu is ranked within the top ten of the LHW why isn't Rashad fighting him to build up his rep instead of Jason Lambert who had lost pretty bad to Rashad. If Rashad were to fight Babalu and beat him he would no doubt be the next one in line for a title shot either against Chuck r the winner of Chuck and Rampage.

I agree it would be a better fight...but I don't agree it would make Rashad the #1 contender.

In my opinion, Forrest is a higher seed than Rashad, simply due to the level of the opponents he's faced, and the amount of skill he showed, even in his losses. Yes, he is on a losing streak, but the guys not picking cupcakes...

That said, Rashad is on his way up, and fast. Let him fight Forrest and/or Jardine, then the winner gets the title holder after two Rampage/Liddell fights.

How's he gonna do it? Babalu has alot better of a ground game and their standup is about the same and Babalu will of course take him down. The only way I see Lambert winning is a flash KO or something like that.

You said it yourself, If their standup is about the same and Babalu ISNT able to take Lambert down, he can obviously win a Decision.

But i think Lambert will be the one to take Babalu down in this fight, keeep a good base, control the fight , and he ccould win a decision

It's a very very long shot but I could be wrong. Rashad dispatched him fairly easily on the ground so I think Babalu should have no problem either, unless he pulls another stunt like he did against Chuck wtf was he thinking?
