But on a personal note id like to see him fight SOMEONE ranked, I mean shit this is getting kinda pathetic beating up on old Shammy and a Tuffer(still questionable) makes him number #1 contender? NO. :banghead:
MMAWeekly has this fight in the rumors section as possibly taking place on Feb 3rd at UFC 67. But, if Wand is out, Chuck will definitely fight before 67 and would need an opponent. Tito has been a posterboy for UFC recently and I think Dana knows he is making him more money than most. I think Tito actually showed a tremendous amount of class in TUF 3 series. I was kinda surprised at how well he bonded and trained his team. Love him or hate him, Tito brings in the buys. Why not make this fight happen? Until Dana gets more competition in the LHW division Tito is really the only other guy that would be a big seller. Imagine the difference in buys for the 62 card to the amount of buys for any card with Lidell vs. Ortiz 2. Even though Babalu is DEFINITELY the more deserving opponent, I would say that Lidell-ortiz 2 would bring in twice as many buys.
