What Happens To Tito if he loses?
 
I think this fight for Ortiz is a must win. He has not proven himself in quite a long time now. He has beaten Shamrock 3 straight times, a guy who was ready to retire before there first fight. Tito almost lost to Forrest a very close decision in my opinion. Now he is fighting someone who is peaking in their division Chuck. If he loses this fight where would he go especially after already losing to Chuck before and Randy before that?.

He got several other wins after his lose to Randy and Chuck. He beat Patrick Cote, Vitor Belfort (who had just lost the title), Forrest Griffin and Ken Shamrock twice. Thats five straight wins so one lose (even a big lose to Chuck) will not end his career. I mean he is not in a most win situation where if he loses he is gone from the UFC.

I personally think Tito is overated. Don't get me wrong he is a good fighter. But no where near the top 5 of the light heavy weight division world wide. The only thing that makes him a household name in MMA is his charisma and antics. If he looses Dana will find a place for him. Tito sells PPVs

i apologize i was off on the wins total and i agree Ortiz is a house hold name; however i feel Ortiz has no proven himself as a legitmate contender by fighting Shamrock 3 times. Now i know Dana is thinking about the paycheck in this one because realisticly i think a rematch between Forrest and Ortiz was in order before Ortiz and Chuck.

PS the only problem i see with my opinion is no one else has established themselves as a contender in the Light Heavy Weight division.

I dont see how Tito could come back after another loss to Chuck. When 99% of your appeal is bravado and shit talk how do go on when you get repeatedly b!tch slapped like a prison snitch?

I'm sure he has a bright future in the WWE.

tito's in trouble if he looses again

Pogo the Clown 12-24-2006 05:09 PM

Even if Tito loses, he is not going any where. He is still one of the UFC's biggest stars and most recognizable fights and thus one of its biggest draws. But I do agree that his credability will be seriouslly hurt.

see its win win for liddel because he can lose and still some of his fans wont jump on the ortiz bandwagon, he will get another shot at tito later.

but if ortiz loses his already hurt fanbase will be hurt again and he wont get a rematch with liddel or another title shot unless someone besides rampage takes liddels title away.
