I'm re-posting this from an earlier thread but what the hell....
Tito is a good fight but a B level fighter right on pr
with Jardine, Forrest, Bisping, and Evans till they surpass him. He didnt deserve that title shot whatsoever. 5 wins my ass. Well ya 5 straight wins but come on. 2 wins against an over the hill, washed up Ken Shamrock he already beat up. He barely beat a TV star in Forrest, fought Cote over two years before he fought Chuck, and Vitor hasn't been Vitor since he knocked out Wandy.
Jeremy Horn is better than Tito
Babalu is better than Tito
Rampage is better than Tito.
Vera is better than Tito.
I would even take Bobby Southworth over Tito right now.
Tito is more of a personality than any fighter I've ever seen. His real name isn't even Tito. He admitted to modeling his persona after Stone Cold Steve Austin, (I.E the double-finger flipping at the Lion's Den, and his lil stance before fights, wipes his hands on his trunks before the bell has even rung just like Austin did. The guys is a good fighter but he is so overrated its not even funny.
Chuck Liddel VS Tito Ortiz is almost as big a mismatch as
Tiger Woods VS Michelle Wie in golf.
