I think Rashad is right about Ortiz. Tito is thinking i have nothing to loose and that's exactly what is going to make him loose that fight and probably the next one and so go back to square one. He fights better with pressure, his back against the wall.
I actually have Tito win by Spilt Dec. Not an easy decision, but i think the odds are on Rashad in my eyes
I am not saying he can't win but if he fights with that state of mind, it is as bad as Rashad's cage rust. I think Rashad will win by split, he's just much faster and a better stiker imo. I will polish tito's bandwagon if he beats rashad convincingly tho even if i dont like how the guy comes across in the media.
I think it's not going to the judges.I say KO victory 1st round for rashad.
Tito is just coming off a win from a Ryan Bader, who has only really lost to the champ, Jon Jones. I think Tito also wants to be back in contention for the belt.So he has motivation and momentum on his side.
Also, Rashad gonna fight after being out for a year and some change with a knee injury. Personally, I think that is a long time to be sitting out. Especially coming off an injury with no warm up fight. Look what happened to shogun. Also, Im pretty sure Rashad isn't with Greg Jackson's Camp anymore. I don't like how Tito has been media wise for a while now. I've always been a long time fan but, he was acting a fool for a while.
Who could he fight for a warm-up fight tho? There really isn't any fights like that in the UFC... And if there was, I'd say a guy that is 1-4-1 over his past six outings is the closest thing to it. Not saying Tito isn't a good fighter, I am just making a point.
Damn how did a guy with a record like Tito earn a fight with a guy as high up as Evans is still confusing me. What a world we live in.
i know, and he got paid half a mill for beating Bader......crazy..
