I'm no Tito Ortiz fan but to say he had nothing to do with the popularity of MMA is ridiculous and it shows your bias. When you ask someone to name a MMA fighter at the top of their head, Tito Ortiz would be one of the most popular answers. I'm not saying he single handedly did it but he was DEFINITELY a major part of it.
isnt this they guy that was afaid to get in a boxing match with Dana
Yes it is. Dana was an amateur boxer though. Plus he got in shape for this fight! Tito wussed out stating there was no reason to show up. There was no money involved and if he won, it didn't help his career, but if he lost it would destroy his career.
