Tito is(was) the perfect villain. I loved to hate him, and so I am sorry to see him go down the tube in this manner.

It is his own fault, though. Noone likes a whiner. Ask "Hollywood" Couture.

Wanderlei Silva, and Vitor Belfort. Honestly why does everybody still whine about the Tito/Forrest fight? Even Forrest has said he lost that fight and Tito also had a bum knee that he probably shouldn't have been fighting on.

I don't think Forrest/Tito was BS. The only decision I have ever really disagreed with was Hammil/Bisping.

2000 and 2005, those are his "great" wins. AMAZING!

Translation of that is that AFL can't afford to pay him, Affliction and UFC can afford it but have told him no and he hasn't heard back from Elite XC yet which isn't a definite no.

Tito has been saying for a while that he wants the most amounbt of money he can possibly get. He doesn't care about where he gets it. Sorry Legend but it has been all about the money for Tito for a long time.

Why are you switching the question? You said that Forrest was his biggest win in his career, I gave you two that I thought were bigger, that doesn't neccesarily mean that they are his only great wins.

I know I am coming to reality with it but he is still my favorite fighter.

Id like my favorite fighters to fight for more than just money but I cant hate on them for it. Money makes the world go round and for Tito this is his last big payday. Go get that paper Tito!!

Because during those times, neither Wanderlei Silva or Vitor Belfort were anywhere as good as the once were (in the case of Vitor) or were going to be (in the case of Wanderlei).
