Have any of you guys checked out Tito's Myspace page? You know it's so easy to rip on the guy and his fans but when you read his blog entries and see how much he sincerely appreciates his fans and how grateful he seems to be to be fighting in the UFC it makes it difficult for me to loathe him.
Don't get me wrong, I still want to see chuck knock him silly...I just don't hate him as much as I used to.
When Matt Hughes was fighting GSP for the second time I realized that I really didn't hate Matt Hughes, I hated his fans. They were so irrational and believed he was completely unbeatable and refused to acknowledge that it was even possible that he could lose to GSP under any circumstances.
I think that's what bothers me about Tito, he so arrogant and cocky and it gets under my skin because I don't think his record warrants it. But what really pisses me off is that his fans buy into it and will argue to the death that he's gods gift to MMA...even though he's done little to deserve that kind of reputation.
and no I'm not being sarcastic...I'm just starting to realize that I'm just as guilty as Tito's fans of getting caught up in the hype. Tito's game is to make you love him or hate him and I let myself get sucked into it just as badly as the fans who think he's the greatest.
Hah exactly thats part of the MMA career as well, showmanship. Especially with the big contracts fighters are signing for fights and PPVs since the sport is a money machine now. Hes the polar opposite of The Natural Couture
