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.

Getting back to Franklin-MacDonald, I thin MacDonald should get Swick first. The winner could fight Franklin.

I agree but I think the winner of Silva/Lutter will face Swick. He wants to fight Silva as he said on many occasions. I see Silva winning and then Swick facing Silva. Which IMO would be a b@dass fight

Winning 5 times in a row isnt easy givin the skill fighters have. Cote proved that he is a good fighter. Forrest did get robbed, Well thats Vitors fault not Tito. He beat Shamrock who could still at any givin time win/the fighters chance.

Vera better than Tito/ its null hes a HW
Tito is better than Babalu
Tito is better than Horn.
Rampage better than Tito/ dont know have never seen a fight

Who cares if he doesnt use his real name. Who cares if he uses a persona.

What you dont relize is that Chuck makes every one look like a *****

Come on guys...there's an a$$load of other threads where the subject of Tito's greatness or lack thereof is being debated.

I don't even think Cote has won a fight in the UFC outside of the TUf show (which does not count).

I think its too soon giving Macdonald a shot at Rich Franklin! Personally, I think he should fight Jorge Rivera or Patrick Cote first! Beat one or both of those guys then we'll see if he's ready for Rich!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

What is Tito's name anyways? I can't believe that's not his name!!!


I'm thinking he's a Mervin or a Cornelius...
