wait wait...people actually think Rashad could take Tito?? lol
IF Rashad was put on his back (which would definately happen) Tito would mangle him.
Whereas, if Tito was put on his back, (which is very plausible) Rashad would do little to no damage, and the fight would stand back up.
Again putting Rashad to his back would require a wrestler with the skill. Rashad was a NCAA Division 1 wrestler and Tito was a Junior College wrestler. that, in terms of wrestling, puts Rashad way ahead of Tito with takedowns and takedown defense. Rashad would not do as much damage as Tito could but I think his wrestling would beat tito because i dont think tito can take him down. Skills make a fight and Rashad would beat Tito where he is strongest, in his wrestling. If Tito were smart he would keep the fight on his feet cause I think he's a busier striker than Rashad, not better (id say they were the same, rashads not a bad striker but i think he knows where his strengths lie) but busier.

It would be a good fight but I don't know if Rashad can hang with Tito at this point. Tito has been on a roll since his loss to Liddell and he even went on a hiatus between. He's dominated Shamrock in both fights (which doesn't say as much as it really could) and he went 3 rounds with Griffin (bad decision or not, he still won).
Plus Ortiz could train on his wrestling with Hamill who is a good wrestler in his own right (and after seeing his performance on Fight Night, that's about the only thing he's good at). If Ortiz is able to take Rashad down, I would have to say it would be over quickly.
Now if you give this fight a year or two, I might have a different opinion.
i think ortiz would be in better shape
even if he lost the 1st round or two hed wear rashard down with better strikes (who cares if your on your back if your inflicting more damage) then in the late 2nd or 3rd...ortiz is just gettin warm while rashards tank is on empty...
You knew I couldn’t resist this one! Chris are serious man? Rashad would have NO chance against Tito. Tito is bigger, Stronger, he is a veteran, he is a better wrestler, the list goes on and on. Tito would destroy Rashad from the guard. Rashad is no where near Tito’s level, the only reason Forest came any where close to getting a decision is because Tito was injured. Your credibility just went to negative 10 after this thread.
