Tito pretends that he doesn't care what people think of him.
He says he doesn't care, but makes up lame excuses to cover up his insecurities. If he didn't care, he wouldn't make excuses and wouldn't be such a baby trying to save face after a loss. Who cares if one judge gave it to Forrest 30-27, that didn't change the fact that he was going to lose anyways.
The genius of the whole thing is that people hate him for his excuses, for his antics and his attitude. With that hate Tito has made a lot of money but that train isn't going to last forever. His last performance was embarrassing to say the least (3rd round) and that's gonna grow old with MMA fans. If he keeps the same attitude and puts on good fights, people will still come and watch him. I personally think he's never going to make it back to the big slams and viscious GnP and he will go the way of Shamrock.
I don't mind feeding the Tito threads, he has been a big part of MMA and deserves some credit for that. But he needs to bow out with some dignity. Who do they get him to fight next? Could it end up worse than his fight with Forrest? I'd prefer to watch these older legends go out w/o tainting their records and leave us with all the good memories. Think of Chuck w/o the Rashad and Shogun KO. Think of Cro Cop w/o the Kongo loss, JDS verbal submission. Think of Shamrock with the countless embarrassing KO's. The list goes on....fold your cards Tito.
