i think tito mentally lost before the fight started, you could tell to, lidell as usual waits for his opponent to step in so he could counter, well ortiz wasnt controlling the octagon too well imo and seemed like he respected chucks hands a little more than he should have and he payed for it but he does have alot of heart and he didnt lose by a devastating KO like the first time so tito was lucky for that alone, he could go to be champ another time and know lidell didnt put him to sleep in their rematch...but lidell did win and knocked him down twice so when the ref stopped it i didnt complain considering he was just laying there...lidell vs ortiz was like a watered down lidell vs horn rematch, tito didnt have to survive as many punches like horn had to

While I watched:

To me, it looked as if Tito would've had a LARGE amount of success against Chuck if he would've put together some nice combinations, got inside the pocket quickly and then take a nice, deep shot off the combos, before Liddell would be able to stuff it. Drive through and power Chuck down. From there he could've gone to work on the ground like he loves to do. As long as he could hold Liddell down and control him on the mat, which is no easy task in itself.

Tito was throwing 2-punch combos, and backing away. Then he'd throw some long, looping over-hand rights...a couple landed - most the others didn't. He'd feint nicely off and on, but never do anything with it. Random shoot from WAY outside...stuffed. Too far away. Telegraphed way too much...Chuck saw it coming before it even happened.

If he would've put together some nice 2-3 punch combos, he would've already been inside the pocket on Chuck, and could've taken a close shot, instead of those far-away shots he was trying - which Chuck easily stuffed all night.

Just what I was seeing.

i'm a monster

Throwing high kicks against Chuck, every time he did he looked so off balance that I swore he was going to fall on his ass. Tito ain't gonna hurt Chuck with his sloppy high kicks and Chuck doesn't respect them anyway, so why waste the energy throwing them and risk getting pounded while he's off balance and trying to recover? It doesn't make sense to me. Other than that I don't think Tito did much wrong. Could've stayed more active and thrown more leg & body kicks so that Chuck would've had a bit more respect for him, and maybe given Tito better ring position. That's about it.
