The thing is that Tito hasn't beaten a good young competitor since 2006. As much as his name will draw casual fans, success is a must if he is going to continue to draw in viewers. Machida made him look slow and at times disinterested in his fight. So, what is to say that he is going to take Affliction more seriously or if he has the ability anymore to compete with the younger guys. What Affliction is doing is bringing in retreads like the Yankees have done, hoping that they will be able to beat out the young up and comers. Casual fans will only tolerate the old guys losing for so long. Affliction needs to focus some of that money they are throwing around on prospects.
