Yeah tito made his name fighting guys who actually weighed around 200lb. That was the limit when he started. I couldn't find a pic of him and Elvis but that one left a lasting impression on me.

Frank shamrock had rolls of quarters in his pockets when he weighed in for their fight.



He's scared of heavyweights. if he wasn't he could have one more fight in the UFC with Meathead.

And here I thought I couldn't hate Tito anymore. War Bader!

Why are people raggin on Tito for being ahead of his time with weight cutting? Back then he was the best example of a fighter taking weight cutting and conditioning seriously, he set the example of what a champions conditioning should be.

Shane Carwin came out saying that they lied about his height added about 2-3 inches to make him "look bigger" when compared to Brock. So ya they are like WWE in that regard...pretty annoying

Doesn't Tito wear lifts? He always seems to be sporting shoes with some big heels lol.

And at the stare downs I believe he wears shoes as well, to show up his opponent, lol.

Griffin also appears to be closer to 6'2 than 6'3.

Pretty much everyone listed between 6 foot and 6'2 in the UFC is probably getting a slight pad. Some more egregious than others.

To give you an idea, Matt Mitrione was measured at 6'2 at the NFL combine...he looks taller than most guys the UFC bills at that height range. The have Jon Fitch listed at 6 foot! Not even close.

I've said this over and over...MMA is not a tall-man's sport, the UFC is just doing it's hyping job. Jon Jones is a legit 6'4 and he towers over everybody.

Another guy who is way overbilled is Alistar Overeem, the dude is 6'3-something.
