ok, so after Tito's win over Shammy last week, he basically said he was back and ready to make a run for glory. so, will we see a Tito/Silva fight soon? i think it'd be one of the best fights Dana could possibly offer! i mean, Tito is Tito so anything is possible, and at least we'd get a high intensity fight from those two. personally, i think Silva would do to Tito what he did to Franklin, but at least Tito's wrestling is far superior to anything Franklin had to offer. so maybe the key would be in taking Silva down. who konws. all i do know, is that nobody has mentioned this possible fight yet!:dunno:

If Tito wins the LHW belt then i would them to try to get Wanderlei Silva to fight Tito in a rematch.

But a anderson sivla vs tito ortiz would be a pretty entertaining match.

Its a pretty good matchup but Tito and Rich should face off first before Tito can have his chance because Shamrock was nothing to him. Beat the first time pretty easily, Beat the second time to fast, and beat the third time easily. Rich obviously wants a rematch after he gets a couple warm up fights so Rich could have a couple odd battles and then him and Tito face off for the title match.

I don't know... I like Tito at LHW, I wouldn't want to see him jump down to MW to fight anderson. If we mean Wanderlei (spelling? lol) that might make for some good action!

Tito cant make MW I dont think, so I doubt this figght would happen. But I was thinking the same thing. I think out of anybody Titos style matchs up with Andersons the best. I was actually thinking the best thing for Rich would be to go train in big bear and learn how to gnp. Because right now he has nothing on Silva.

I think this would be a kick ass fight. However seeing Tito a few times 185lbs might be too much weight for him to cut. This is a big strong dude. And 15 lbs is ALOT of extra weight to loose from a weight in which he was already very lean.

I think Tito would be the ideal fighter to throw against Sliva. Sliva would not be able to man-handle Tito in a clinch the guys just way to big and strong.

Maybe If The Had A Catch Weight Of 195 But I Doubt It, But Either Way I Think Tito Would Kill Anderson Silva, Ryo Chonan GaVe Silva Sum Pretty Good Ground And Pound Imagine Wat Tito Would Do

Tito could never make 185 and certainly would't be a force if he had too. The guy said it on TUF3, when Ed Herman made fun of his chicken legs. That is how he makes weight at 205. Even for this last match, he had to sprint around the weight room for like 10 extra minutes to drop 2 more pounds.

You guys saying that Tito's style matches up well with Silva's, are correct. That is why I think Lindland would be a good match for the title. Lindland probably could have beat Franklin, but apparently Dana and him are having their differences and can't get negotiations together.

P.S.

Tito would never cut the weight for the fight. Even if he could, he wouldn't. There is no reason for him to drop when he is a contender in his own weight class.
yeah he cant, nor should he, he has great fighter like liddell to deal with, why does he have to prove he can beat soemon smaller?

If silva wants to prove he can beat tito he would need to move up.

Tito Vs. Silva would be similar to Sherk Vs. Florian.

Tito's power would just be too much of an advantage.
not sure about that one! comparing Silva to Florian made me spit my coffee!!! Tito is strong, but there isn't a striker anything like Silva in the rest of the UFC! he's something new to the UFC that i don't think any fighter could simply walk over!

pt447,

Read my post more closely.

I did not say florian and silva were of comparable ability. I stated that I believe Tito's strength/style would be too much for a more technical fighter like silva. It is quite a simple idea. The fact that Tito overpowers opponents in the 205 weight class leads me to believe that he could do the same in 185.

Why would tito drop the weight though. Hes already a contender in his own weight division. I think Tito is at the perfect weight right now for him. If they did fight i would like silva to win, but titos power would prob overwhelm him.

Tito gets his shot at Iceman. In the meantime, if Pete Sell wins TUF 4 then he gets a shot at Silva right? If Sell beat Silva then maybe UFC would set up a rematch of Sell vs Baroni.
