I think its the other way around.

Sylvia beat Arlovski clean, so theres no reason why he won't do it again. Don't count him out.

Did anyone see Shamrock beat KIMO? By the looks of it, it doesn't seem like anyone here did. Don't count Shamrock out either, he will have learned from his first fight with Tito and probably has a different gameplan. He was also injured at the time, and has now since been training with different people.
Not to mention Ortiz is nothing like he used to be, it looks like hes lost 'it'.

no, & so what if ken was injured. he souldnt have fought then it was his lost. tito wouldve won anyway.

ya i have noticed that also.

Although i wasn't impressed with Tito's last fight.

A.A recked Sylvia in they're first fight,And droped him in the second but got caught with a punch.I say A.A wins Knock out first round.

i think that ken talks to much trash & he gets what he deserves, a beating from tito ortiz

I hope to see the Shamrock that could fight for half an hour at a time. He need to focus a lot for this fight, because he IS the underdog, though I beleive he can pull it off.

ortiz is not going to tap out.

That would be cool, but for Royce's sake I would hope he would win. If he loses to Shamcock, then he needs to hang it up.

I think Shamrocks biggest advantage in this fight is that everyone seems to think he is going to get destroyed. So all he can do is either meet peoples expectations or exceed them by winning its a win win for him mentaly he has no mental preassue, ( not ment to be a joke) All he has to do is come out focused. Tito has all the pressure everyone expects him to be shamrock and since he did last time its even more pressure as shamrock is older and such now.. age is not yet a factor for Tito
personaly I want to see Shamrock come out and go old school on Tito It would make it a good fight and hard to predict, but if we see the shamrock of late its going to be over quickly. I am pulling for Shamrock though
