fuck yeah, go Tito. I honestly enjoy watching the guy fight every time (except that loss to hammil), he’s content to stand and trade and you don’t see that much at light heavyweight anymore. if he can stop rashad in the same way he stopped bader, i’ll eat my shoes
Tito beat ryan bader…so he is clearly on par with jon jones meaning he will run through rashad and when tito gets his title fight with bones and both of their power punches collide it will bring about the fightocalypse fortold of in the dead sea scrolls.
One crazy note from all this mess is that people often criticize Ortiz for how inactive he’s been over the last few years, but since the start of 2009, Evans has fought three times, with eight rounds of cage time. Ortiz has fought three times, with seven rounds of cage time. Evans is 2-1 with two decisions and was knocked out once. Ortiz is 1-2 with one stoppage victory, and one of his losses by split-decision. Perhaps most importantly, Ortiz is coming off a full camp, a win, and should be relatively close to peak shape. Meanwhile, Evans hasn’t fought in over 14 months, his longest layoff since joining the UFC in 2005. It’s certainly possible that he struggles with timing after so much time away. Given all those factors, it may not be so crazy to suggest that maybe these guys aren’t as far apart as the odds suggest.
