The last time Evan fought was last april, and I thought he looked pretty good and fast with that traingle he jumped into. Then, well he went a little loony, if you check out his myspace page, it's pretty obvious he isn't thinking about fighting anytime soon. Plus, he's 35, which is getting a bit old to be letting yourself go the way he is and then trying to get back in shape.

It's kind of a bummer, he was a good addition to the middlewight division, and personally one of my favorite fighters.

I have reason to believe that Tito will retire, possibly after this year. Especially if things don't go his way, which they probably won't.

Doubtful. While Tito should retire due to his lack of skills and improvement, as long as he can make a quick buck and fight cans, he'll stay in the game. With many popular TUF contestants now in te UFC, Tito has a long supply of overhyped fights coming his way. That is...fights made big by hype and not skill. As good as Forest Griffin is, any fighter not on TUF would have to be much more skilled to bring in as many views as forrest does.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

And I thought Chuck said somewhere (can't remember where though) that he thought about moving to heavyweight. Could be I just read a rumour somewhere.

I'd probably agree with you if it weren't for this video.

Shonie pretty much said at the end of the TUF show he had a couple of more fights and then he was done.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Tito was probably talking about going to HW BEFORE he heard Cro Cop was coming. Back then it would have been a good idea.
