1. Tito also lost Mezger
2. What Wanderlei did after that fight was much more impressive than what Tito did during his entire career.
I don't mean to trash or disrespect Tito, but where can you realistically rank him all time at 205? How far down the line amongst the 205 and HW's do you give Legend status.
#4 only behind Liddell, Wandy and Couture. IMO he and Shogun are close for 4 and 5 and basically interchangeable.
It isn't a rivalry if it is one sided. Ken Shamrock and Evan Tanner were not good fighters. He was 1-1 against Mezger and Vitor should have gotten that decision. He lost those legendary fights.
The top level fighters he has gone against are Chuck, Mezger, Wandy, Randy, Vitor, Frank, Forrest, Evans, and Lyoto. He is 4-8-1 against those guys and 2 of those wins are fraudulent. 2-10-1 against the best THE STUFF OF LEGENDS!
God, look Wandy just lost 6 or his last 8 he is horrible, Chuck lost 5 or his last 6 his entire career is meaningless, Randy Couture, hell that chump lost 3 of his last 6 and one was a BS decision over Brandon Vera. Hell I guess the entire LHW division sucks and nobody who ever fought in the division is a legend.
Evan Tanner was a former champion for gods sake, Shamrock was once one of the most feared fighters on the planet. Albeit Shamrock was already on the decline when he met up with Tito, it doesn't make it a wash.
