I agree. Tito is a bit full of himself.

He seems to forget Chuck had a lot to do with that record breaking PPV back in the day. Tito does have drawing power no doubt, but an extra 500,000? That's pushing it.



This Time ... Break It!

It should be an interesting fight. I think Tito takes it VIA GNP.

How can you possibly see it that way? Babalu has better BJJ and wrestling than anyone Tito has managed to finish in his career. Let's not forget that this fight will take place in the ring, which strongly favours the striker, and Babalu's hands looked way better in his last fight than Tito's did against Machida. If Tito wins, it will be a lay and pray decision, even then I think he won't be able to keep Babalu down.

Spot on. UFC 73 did 425,000 buys, average at best for the UFC. But he thinks he'll pull 500,000 buys with Affliction. Very good, Tito .

P.S. Even as a dude with a rather large head myself, seriously I can't even buy hats, Tito's head scares me.

Hmm..UFC 73 has 2 title fights, One of which A.Silva, and also one of the main card fights is Big Nog's debut in the UFC. Lucky Tito was on the card, otherwise there would be negative 75000 buys

Babalu by Anaconda choke of death, i hope he puts a clinic on, and just completely outwrestle Tito, like he did with Van Arse Dale

I think it's hilarious that he's saying he's going to sign a long term deal and help build the company, when in fact affliction isn't even going to make it. They'll have 2 or 3 more cards before they decide they still aren't making money and Tom Atencio will go back to making clothes
