Yeah Forrest did well against Tito, so beings Keith is very similar to Forrest, we were talking that Jardine might have an even better chance against Tito. I wasn't using a formula, but if you look at the beating Jardine handed Forrest and consider Forrest hanging with Tito like he did, you could assume Keith would do as well if not better against Tito.

Ok maybe there was some Formula type stuff going on there, but you know

Well personally I seen no beating. At least what I would consider one. I saw a pretty even match. Actually I thought Forrest was winning until he got caught. Im a Forrest fan the woman and I was screaming for him to grab a leg or something...but it happens to the best of them. Once again I saw no "beating". A beating is what George did to Matt or what Anderson did to Rich. IMO of course.

Not a Tito fan and am glad he lost but I don't think that was an excuse. I think he really hurt himself. You could clearly see that knot on his shin.

the beating I refer to is what happened that ended the fight. Sorry you don't call that a beating. I thought it was stopped due to the beating, or strikes if you will, that Griffin was taking to the head. Maybe my MMA lingo or understanding isn't as well versed as your own. I apologized. Please feel free any time I say something like, "wow he rocked him" to come on and correct me. I am human and don't know everything.

Chuck is so tough to beat because of his strengths. He has devastating stand-up and it's nearly impossible to take him to the ground, so his strength is something he can use 100% of the time in fights (with the one exception being Couture). Tito's strength requires him to take his opponent to the ground before he can use it. In the case of tonight's fight he never even got a chance to use it.

It will take either a better striker or someone with the right game plan like Couture to beat Chuck. And of course Chuck isn't getting younger so that could play a factor as well.

I apologize if I offended you. I was just stating my personal opinion on that matter. I think you took it the wrong way. If I may elaborate on it I would like to say that Forrest would stand a better chance against Chuck then Keith. For the same reason I mentioned before...styles make matchups.

Im not a big Chuck fan and actually wanted Tito to win...but are you serious win you ask "Is Chuck that good"? I see you have 6o post (I just found this forum, been watching UFC since #1) so I assume you have seen many of Chuck's opponents and the big names he has put too sleep. Not won by dissions but KOs. Seriously...are you for real with this question or just fishin?
>

No. I Know how good Chuck is!!!! and I gotta say like some did earlier, it did seem like Chuck held off a few times when he hurt tito and he backpedaled, I kept saying, Why is'nt Chuck moving in to try n finish this???? but again Chuck is Great, but Damn I think he toyed with tito and was never, ever in anything resembling trouble last night...

Which begs my question?? is tito a bit overrated?? he barely beat Forrest who some think he won, tito has trouble with Strikers - Hitters!!!!! gnp'ers he can hang with.. As for his future?? Yeah I wanna see tito fight jardine and to hell with their friendship, he's gotta be a man and fight Rampage at some point...
