you never knew what went on in his head back then, all he wanted was fame so why not piss one of the biggest name in MMA off. (Ken Shamrock)

he did it cause he's arrogant. He got owned hard core by chuck and randy. And i wouildn't say that tito was good competition for chuck. Maybe just for chuck's gloves.

I think Tito is a good fighter, but his attitude is what makes me hate him...

Chuck beat his ass ud think hed shut the **** up for awhile but no, he starts yapping his mouth about liddell. And the shirts and shit, wtf, just fight if u win, win like a man and if u lose, lose like a man don't start jumping around flipping off people like your 13 years old. As for shamrock, idk wut he does know but in the day his training wus legendary and his 42 and hes ben fighting all his life so it takes a toll. anyway hes already proven himself time and time againn thats why hes in the hall of fame and hes got respect for fighters thats why he has fans. he might get his ass beat by tito in october but u cant argue his toughness and heart, he doesnt care if he loses he just wants to fight, u dont see him tryin to duck fights either.
If Tito shut his mouth and stopped flipping off people then he wouldn't be Tito Ortiz. Its like he said in an interview once, "There will be a million Matt Hughes out there, but there is only going to be one Tito Ortiz."

Is Hughes the 2nd coming of Jesus or something? I can compare a shitload of people to Hughes its so easy. Anybody that can ground and pound is comparable to Hughes. Hughes' ground and pound is not the best in the world so he's very easy to be compared to. Sean Sherk could easily be compared to him. GSP, Diego (not too much but still comparable), Carlos Newton, etc. You guys give some fighters way too much credit sometimes. Hughes is a great fighter, but it's a little overboard saying nobody compares to him I think. He's not THAT great. Matt doesn't get challenges nearly enough to say he's uncomparable, and the fights he does get challenged by, he barely wins, or completely loses. I think I'll start on thread on this so save your comments please and resume back to the subject of this thread.

Tito is annoying but is a great fighter. I watch it for the fights not the drama, but that's just me. So I like him because he is a good fighter.

Tito's blatant disrespect for the fighters he beats is what makes me not like him. You can talk all the trash you want, but rubbing it in someone's face in a sport like this is just uncalled for. Backing up your trash talk is fine and dandy, but adding insult to injury is so untolerable. Then how he tries to justify flipping off Guy Mezger's corner by saying that he once saw Shamrock refuse to give a kid an autograph is just ridiculous. He's got all the talent in the world but he has the maturity of a 16 year old. I was glad to see Shamrock give him a little taste of his own medicine towards the end of TUF3. It's a shame that a guy with so much talent has such poor sportsmanship.

I feel the same way. After the UFC 62 rematch of Bonner and Griphen. Joe Rogan ask Forest when he would be ready to fight the champ...and he said "when I stop doing this"(ducking his head and blindly swinging) lol its a good quality of any fighter to say little when they loose and even less when they win. Tito is very cocky and disrespectful. Even after Chuck schooled him he still likes to call him out and "claim" to want a rematch. Randy beat him so bad he cried and then put the belt around his waist. He felt really small. And even though I would love for someone to make him feel like that again. I doubt he would learn anything from it. Some peole just talk smack...its the way he is. Thats the main reason why i can only respect him as a fighter but am not a fan.
