if you want to display both title and points then need to pass another parameter to the 'ba_get_user_points' function (Boolean , default false) to get an array that contains both Title and Points:

<?php $baur_plugin = new baur_Plugin();
$user_rank = $baur_plugin->ba_get_user_points($user_id,true);
echo "title: ". $user_rank['title'] . "Points: " . $user_rank['points'];?>
