    Read below before you comment.

    I think it's pretty funny how Tito changed up his whole attitude after he realized his fake ass bad boy attitude was getting him nowhere with the fans. Now he acts like a respectful person and a good coach (ala Couture), but I think it's pretty obvious to the fans who have seen his earlier work that it's all just a show to earn him new fans. I still think he acts way too much like a pro-wrestler and I don't like it.

    He takes credit for everything, tries to put his face in wherever he can, it is always about him in his mind.

    I killed the axe murderer, when it was a decision, and the fight itself was far from a "killing", unlike the killing of silva by vitor.

    "gay mezger" stunt

    pro rasslage with shamrock (who is by far more immature, but w/e)

    diggin the grave, shootin the air pistols.


    tbh i dont know. Could be an act, maybe ye maybe no. He was alot better coach than shamrock for whatever reasons though. I don't think they could edit that out.

    :rofl: at "growing up"

    If you seriously think that Tito has really matured, you really should think again

    I'm sure he has grown up a little, but the only reason he acts the way he does now is to impress fans

    :rofl:, at you not being able to respond without pointlessly insulting me..weak

    And I'm not just talking about TUF, I'm talking about all the pre/post-fight interviews I've seen, and other interviews I saw before he was announced for the TUF after the Vitor fight

    He has matured, as I said before, but the way he acts like that is to get fans

    No, he can win. He didn't always get ripped on for being a prick and having the pro-wrestler style thing..but the sport matured.

    I have no problem with him acting mature, I just see the cracks in his "maturity" in most of his interviews and appearances.

    Best of luck to him to become that figure, I'm just saying he's not at that level yet.

    Another thing, brought up on an identical thread I made on Sherdog-

    From what I hear he is still a pretty cool guy in person and nice to his fans, I will give him that.

    He acts entirely different in front of the camera, I'm not trying to say he always acts like that in person anyways

    I rarely make threads on Sherdog, if you search my profile I think I've made maybe 3 identical threads between these two boards ever :rofl:

    I don't even post on Sherdog often, I've been registered for a long time and I haven't broken 500 posts

    He also helps promote the UFC...people like drama and he brings it cause he knows that draws people in......people love to hate him and love to love him, but either way he's still getting the attention and in turn getting endorsements and publicity, which = more $

    Cant hate on a guy for that???

    agreed, Tito over hypes everything. Give me a Randy, or Chuck anyday over tito's full of shit WWF bullshit.
    Franklin, Hughes, GSP, Randy, Chuck, Fedor, etc shit so many great fighters and so little bullshit, but with Tito you have constant underachiever and a bunch of attitude, no thanks, those who like flash with no substance can have him I'll stcik with Chuck instead oh and while i'm at it, babaloo who? lmao

    top in the world in UFC or all MMA?

    cause the list of Pride fighters who would own him is HUGE. He would have to quit fighting poor old shamrock over and over to convince some people (like me) that he can still fight, but he talks more shit than any other fighter but the only guy he seems to want to fight anymore is shamrock who hasn't been a contender for anything in a very very long time, still dangerous sure but come on, the guy isn't the top of the heap that's for sure. If tito wasn't a punk he'd be screaming for a fight with liddell instead of Shamrock the 3rd time around, but maybe tito is just scared of having another video on youtube of chuck beating him senseless while he leans on the cage hoping for the ref to stop the fight before he gets sent to the hospital.




    *oh and yes i know tito would kick my ass before anyone makes that argument but while i'm sitting in the safety of my office typing i can say he isn't even top 8 light heavies in the UFC and i'd have to think awhile before ranking him against pride fighters cause ouch, tito would be owned. lol*
