In the case of Tito, his experience would seem to work against him, as he would seem to have lost every stand up battle he has waged throughout his career.

Why is Tito's stand up so horrible in comparison to other fighters -- even newer fighters like Mark Hamil? And, is experience really the advantage that some say it is?

If experience really were valuable wouldn't Tito's stand up be god-like by now & wouldn't he be punching fools through the fence of the octagon and winning every fight via KO/TKO as opposed to having every new name in the business outstrike him?

What do you fellas think?
Some people just dont have what it takes to learn the striking game and tito is definitely one of them. just seeing him Wind up he looks uncomfortable and slow.

Mean Ground & Pound tho..

I don't think the worst striker in mma would have gone the distance with Machida.

Also, I would take Tito in a boxing match against anyone who ever trained at Hammer House.
Didn't Phil Baroni train some time with Hammer house? he's a better boxer than Tito imo, but the rest of them are worse.

Phil spent more time with tito and team punishment than he did at hammer house. Phil gets around. But...yeah you got me ...he's a better boxer than Tito.
