Did Tito get tiltle shot too fast ?
Tito hadn't fought in about a year. His last fight was a split decision win over Vitor Belfort. When he comes back to the UFC , Dana White gives a three fight contract. If he wins his first two fights he gets a shot at the belt. When I heard this I thought they were going to give him people like Babalu or Alessio Sakara. His first match was Forrest Griffin. Even though I like Forrest I thought he would get manhandled by Tito. The first round supported this theory. I thought as Forrest went into the second round he would get taken down and Tito would get the TKO vitory. Tito couldn't seem to be able to take Forrest down in the second round and Forrest was striking Tito pretty good. The same thing happened in the third round and Tito limped away with the split decision vitory. Then Tito's next match is against a legend who should have retired after he fought Kimo. All Tito would have to do now is beat a guy who is 12 years older than him and he was now ready to fight Chuck. I don't see the logic here.
