The difference between Mirko and Tito?

Simple.

Tito's giving us the same ol' bull saying he's coming back.. I've heard it for too long and no longer willing to be fooled by it.

Also, I think Mirko is much more promising.

My only problem with this whole situation is that I listened to Tito claiming he's 100% before his fight, and then after his poor performance claiming he was only 75%. I believe he was injured, and that he didn't fight at his best, but that's no one's fault but his own. No one is making him sign his contract with injuries.

I'm glad he's taking the time to get healed up though. I still think he's a good fighter and can put on some fun shows, so hopefully he takes about a year off, fully recovers, and finishes out his career strong.

Getting in shape. I'm doing rehab for my injurys. I'm sick of fight 75%. I'm trying to pay my bills injured and making guys like evans and forrest look good. I can't do it anymore. I'm going to take some time to take care of myself. Everone wants the old Tito back and I'm going to give it to them.

shouldnt he have ended it with

im comming for my belt......

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

I think hes telling the truth, he needs to heal. Besides he should have beat Rashaad and would beat him agian, even at 75%.

Props for bringing up Dragonball Z, but non-props for getting the details wrong.

In the early sagas, up to the Freiza saga, they have those viewfinder things that measure people's fighting power, but they are not percentages, they are absolute numbers. In the Saiyan saga they are coming in around a few thousand at the beginning. Goku hits a few hundred thousand on planet Namek, and Freiza hits 1,000,000 in his first transformation. I think that around then the viewfinders break.

Of course, the fantastic thing is that every character in it subsequently becomes about 1,000,000 times more powerful than that. It's kind of like that episode of the Simpsons when Homer climbs that big-ass mountain, and he keeps looking to his right and seeing a mountain that dwarfs the one he just saw.

Can anyone tell that I like my cartoons?
