Anyone watch UFC countdown catch Tito's stupid remarks?
Watched the countdown in Aus yesterday (ns when it is on in America) and 2 things that Tito said caught my eye.
1. The exact same thing as to what he said against Vitor Belfort and his shirt contradicting it. The "I've got nothing to lose" shirt I believe, and the "I've got everything to lose" was what he said
This time he said both comments, so he has everything and nothing to lose against Machida.
2. This one i actually gasped. paraphrasing 'I've fought some of the best strikers in the world, I versed Chuck Liddell and i didn't get knocked out then'. Hmm....I guess Chuck gave him such a beating in UFC 47 that Tito doesn't remember what happened. He can call it a T/KO or watev, but if that fight went on a second longer it would be lights out Tito and even then im pretty sure Chuck KO'd him.
Anyway, I understand that Tito has done wonders for the sport, but i think his time is up and he's versing the future of the LHW division (in terms of being a serious contender, don't get me wrong i think Tito can still fight, but he isnt the Tito of old as isnt going to hold up with the stacked LHW division). The only that Tito has gotten better in is having a huge ego (almost as huge as his head.) And besides, i would much rather see Tito as a coach then as a fighter (im aware that he's moving to another organisation to fight) on the basis of what he did in Ultimate Fighter 3, that's the only reason why i still respect him.
