He then goes in against Shamrock for the most eagley awaited fight in MMA history at the time & whoops him.
Then Chuck Liddle starts spouting his mouth & everyone says he's avoiding him. Liddle takes on Couture & loses, therefore Couture gets the title fight. Tito takes on Couture & loses the belt, then takes on Liddle & get's his ass kicked.
I'm telling you now if Tito fights Babalu, Liddle, Silva, Crocop, Fedor & King fucking Kong they'll still be people saying he got fed cans or they were past their prime.
Anyway on to the point of the thread, in my opinion Tito is fighting Ken again because of the people on forums etc complaining that the second fight was stopped too soon. He pretty much said so when the crowd booed him after the fight.
