Since Tito has made his "comback" to the UFC, his preformance in both the forrest and the shamrock fight were horrible!

So from a managerial standpoint putting Tito up against and older UFC Vet like Keith Hackney and giving him an easy win or a fight where he can dominate, and show off would be the smart thing to do, if the UFC is planning for a Tito + Liddel 2 or Forrest 2 as his next fights.

How can you say his performance against Shamrock was terrible. Is it his fault the old man couldn't take a beating long enough to make it an interesting fight?

i saw it was terrible b/c after all the months or years of hype (depending on how u look at it) tito gave the fans only 1 min and 20 secs of action, and then walked away with 210 grand. To me thats was bullshit out of respect to the fans since he has none for shamrock he should have given at least one round for all the hype

Tito = Overated !!!

So you would rather Tito fake a first round to please you? That sounds an awfull lot like WWF to me. Tito did what he came to do. If you are going to blame some one make it Ken Shamrock for being a slouch. MMA is the real deal and thats how it goes down sometimes no matter if it is a super hyped fight or just a prelim in a small show.

Tito is on a 5 fight win streak, in the UFC, that shit aint easy. Tito is a world class fighter. He had some trouble with Forrest, but he controlled the entire fight.

He didn't control the entire fight lol, what fight were you watching, the 2nd and 3rd round forrest was sprawling almost everything. In the 3rd round forrest got a little cocky about the sprawl (he said it himself) and he went down to the ground and thats how he lost it. The first round isn't the entire fight.

Also how can you blame tito for shamrocks shitty performance, this is MMA if you want 20 minute fights with UPS and DOWNS go watch WWE. Because MMA fighters do one thing, try to hurt the other guy the most and win the fight, and thats what tito did.

I think he'd probably be fighting Rashard Evans personally, just because forrest is fighting bonner and Liddell is covered pretty well the next few PPV's already against Babalu and Silvia so... thats my best guess. Plus like Deigo i know alot of people want to see Rashard not have a perfect record.

hahahaha

Forrest sure with a busted leg what do you want? The first round was pure and utter dominination. You could tell by his movement he was hindered. You blame a guy for being injured, you're an idiot. As for Shamrock...you're a moron if you think he looked terrible. So guys look better when the fight goes all 3-5 rds? Just stop.....and if you're gunna blame anyone, blame Herb Dean...even marble for brains Shammy blames him, not Tito for OWNING him via elbows....not like the 1st fight was any different....I'm not a big fan of Ortiz but it doesn't take a genius to come up with a fair fight analysis. The reality is Tito will get a 2nd shot @ Chuck (pending Wand fight) and will be owned again. If he's given Babalu, he'll loose to him too. Tito's not the best LHW but he's 10x the fighter Ken & Forrest are combinded.

The hackney idea has to be completely false. Tito cannot fight another fighter on the downside of that foghters career. Tito/shammy 3 is something that i dont want to see. Give the Badboy someone like Rashad, Jardine, or anothe TUFer. This will help him with the newbs and set up a title fight around the first of the year.

First off, I am not blaming Tito for Shamrock's performance, where did that come from? I think Tito simply out classed him. I completely agree with the stoppage, so I dont know what you are talking about.

And yes he did control the fight. Forrest may have frustrated a few takedown attempts, and threw some sloppy punches, but thats it. Tito dominated him in the 1st round and for the most part imposed himself throughout the rest of the fight.

There is no telling who he will fight next but he will win.

That defense of your statement is even more ridiculous. So anyone who doesn't have long fights is overated and has ripped off the fans. Makes no sense but I don't suspect that is what your purpose is by posting such rubbish.

Hmmm...I was doing some thinkin' - and thought: Why doesn't the UFC bring in Ricardo Arona? I'd like to see him and Tito go. Thoughts on this one?

Edit: Made this. Thought is was cool. Wanted you guys to see it. Feel free to use it in a signature. :thumbsup:

oh shut up and take tito's **** out of ur mouth Cbingham.

Its obvious to anyone with common sense that it was the UFC giving Tito a push b/c he has the power to bring in fans based on his name...hence MONEY

**** over ken and make him look like a jerk b/c nobody is gonna care about him b/c his career in MMA is over. PRIDE the exact same thing to him when he fought Sakuraba.

u american fans don't even have respect for your american fighters...the honorable thing for the UFC and tito to have done was to give ken one round, thats it, let him go out swinging, that way he could have ended his career sayin he gave it his all.
