Tito-Shamrock 3

A second fight was ridiculous. A third would be absolutely preposterous and revolting. The man is old and washed up. He should have retired two years ago.

Was anyone else upset with the silvia/arlovski fight.I didn't think either man won that fight.It was anticlimatic.

Also I know alot of people will be upset with the stopage of the Ortiz/Shamrock fight although I think it was a good call.Shamrock did nothing to protect himself.

I think the tim vs. AA fight sucked too. It was a title fight and i wanted a FIGHT. See my "Tim vs. Andrei (booooooooo!!!)" thread

Dan Christison got robbed. But who cares, they both sucked.

WTF is wrong with Yves? He's way better than that, or maybe I only thought he was.

AA was a dissapointment. He seemed scared to go in on Sylvia and he didn't even attempt to take the fight to the ground.

Best part of the night was the Liddell/Silva announcement.

I Think That Tito Is Great!! He Proved Himself As A Coach, And Forsure As A Fighter!! He Is Great!! Ken Shamrock Is Alright, But He Can't Keep Up With The Time. From The Bayous Here In Louisiana From The Bright Lights In Las Vegas, Tito Is #1!!!:d

if ther eis going to be a Shamrock/Ortiz 3. It need to be before the end of the year.. perhaps the next event.. if this fight was as short and unexciting as I hear.. then both fighters should be physically ready to go today... set this for UFC 62 get it done and over with

I hope there's no 3rd meeting. There's no need for it. I missed this fight last night because my cable company screwed up the PPV event, and had to refund everyone's money. :(

When I first heard about the result, everyone seemed to think it was stopped to early, but after seeing the entire fight on Youtube, and studying the replay, it's clear the stoppage was justified. Ken can only blame himself if he thought it was premature, because he took at LEASt 5 hard elbows without any attempt to defend himself.

Here's the fight if you're interested:

In the online after fight interview Ortiz says the same thing! He said "Set it up for November" along with the Liddell/Slvia fight, he was ready for it.

Hmm..Wonder how that new Black Camaro drives?..lol

I'm not sure about the tim thing but I do know that Ortiz didn't earn a title shot just from one fight.I know Tito looked good but there are too many variables and Shamrock isn't the fighter he once was.

i wish Shamrock would get a fight he could win so he can go out feeling on top I think he's not going to quit with a loss even though that's the sign to quit

Aa

Does anyone know who AA has in his corner. In the first half of round one he was repeatedly using leg kicks, and you could visually see them working. After that I could count on one hand the number of leg kicks he used. If i am wrong and no one else noticed it let me know.

a loss is not a sign to quit, its a sign your lacking something or need more work on something he needs to train harder and with better people... then he'll win fights again.. even against tito..
