Thoughts? My first thought is that this is one of the most poorly written MMA Weekly articles I've read recently.

ROCKBASS03: In short, yes, it would make sense for Strikeforce to sign Tito. Despite the public feud Tito and Dana have had over the past couple of years, the UFC understands his drawing power and is still interested in him.

The very fact he's been out of action so long and elicits such strong reactions shows why Strikeforce needs to sign him. He may not be top 10 any more, but his drawing power is obviously very much alive.

this is pure hype to make casual fans believe that he is on a road to Fedor...when we all know he's busted as an explosive fighter and is past his prime. He might be able to grind out fights against wannabees and never-wases (sp?) but it'll be the Jens Pulver bs all over again.

Tito will be matched with guys who look exciting via marketing or other subpar fighters. I don't have a lot of faith in guys past 34 in MMA.

Arrow In the Future

IF this fight were ever to happen it would take place down the road! Tito needs to get his warm-up fight in, fight for the title and take a few fights after that before he can worry about a fight with Fedor! In short, this would take place when both men are in their mid-late 30s!

If Fedor beats Barnett and doesnt end up in the UFC, Tito will be his next fight. This fight would be the biggest one outside of the UFC in recent history and would make twice the money that any other fight Strikforce or Affliction could put together at this time. Im calling it right now. Tito is still a pretty big name.

Exclamation Catchweight

Regardless of whether it happens or not, Tito said he would want to fight at a catchweight! That would mean that he and Fedor would have to agree upon a weight at which Fedor could loose all the fat and a safe amount of water weight! If it happened it would probably happen at 210 or 215 cause I don't think Fedor could loose too much more!

Talking Big Name

There is just something about Tito that makes the guy a big name draw! It's kinda like Kimbo Slice, he's not a great fighter but he draws people anyways. For Ortiz is partially has to do with his stint on the Apprentice, but regardless he is one of the bigger name guys in the sport and because of that he will always draw in big crowds!

To be fair, Tito at least had his time where he was the top dog in the UFC.

Gotta give props to Tito. At least he's not ducking anybody.
