was just browsing the internet when i stumbled across this image of TUF11 set.




in case you didn't know tito has been rumored to be injured and has pulled out of his fight against chuck. tito's replacement has been rumored to be either rich franklin or randy couture. this picture pretty much confirms that franklin is the replacement, and the ufc is planning to make the announcement on a future episode of TUF11.

i don't have any official links, just the picture.

I am not sure what to think about this whole situation. You have Dana denying any part Franklin coming in for Tito and I dont think he would just lie openly and take that back 2 months later.

chuck also said that tito was still scheduled to be his opponent. I smell a storyline.

Honestly, there's so much misinformation going on...and there's very little information at all. I would rather watch the show and learn that way. Though this picture is in a way telling. I hope to see the same area with a Chuck/Tito image during one of the next episodes to see if it appears doctored at all.

if dana let the cat out of the bag before TUF11 even aired its first show just think of how bad the ratings would be. dana white puts business first before everything, and holding information until the right time is good for business.

That would be awesome if they fought. I'd like to see TUF change, it's a nice surprise because I like Franklin. Doubt either could knock each other out. Chuck takes it to the ground a few times for a UD win.

damn right. chuck/tito III is boring, we all know chuck will get the KO. chuck/franklin however is a very interesting matchup, and at this point franklins probably a bigger draw than tito anyway.

i see franklin picking chuck apart on the feet en route to a unanimous decision, and putting him back on the map at 205.

...seriously?

Well, if true then I like it. The Tito vs Chuck trash talk on TUF will be epic I'm sure, but I just don't have any interest in seeing Chuck/Tito III. Franklin is a much more intriguing matchup for Chuck. I wonder where this pic is from though... surely the editors of the show aren't stupid enough to let such a pic find it's way on a promo vid, are they?

ahh... the plot thickens. We must all tune in each week to see. The whole thing smells like tito went to Dana and said please please my girlfriend and I have some ideas to promote the show please! Chuck said, do i still get to hit tito? ok it's cool.

i knew the rumour he was fighting franklin was fake soon as i heard it was cause tito got injured, he never gets injured, that would just be unthinkable

Yeah Tito doesn't rock my socks. Franklin is way smarter and I hold him in high regard, especially when compared to the likes of Tito (who imho should be in WWE for his twilight years; he'd be a star there).

MMA math says this match-up should be even and a toss-up, a la UD over Wanderlei. But, Franklin is more technical than Chuck and does have great gameplans that guides him thru the whole fight and only falls apart against Brazilian Southpaws.

Interesting in this picture how everything is kinda shaded but only Rich's picture is very bright. If you see Chuck's picture, it is kinda in a place where light doesnt fall directly on it. In fact, every other place in that sorrounding it was like that. Just Rich's picture is so bright and light falls directly on it.

This, I am afraid, is some magic of Photoshop and not an actual picture.

Notice the big bright light that is on right next to it? Yeah, there's your answer.

Didn't Rich come in and replace Tito toward the end of the season? They could have just changed the banner when Rich came in.

that's possible dana and chuck avoided direct questions about it, from what i read though. and they did say tito was still on schedule. so could be some real shenanigans ending with tito vs chuck anyway.
