No he didn't. Check your timeline.
Tito came along on the tail end of that "transformation",
His game was primarily stuffing guys against the cage in half guard and pounding. His boxing was adequate and his clinch was a product of his Greco-Roman wrestling.
Couture was a wrestler with good (at the time) boxing and a nasty clinch, he was the next step in the evolution
He got beaten by two HOF'ers in the prime of their careers....
Tito, however, was an example of a one-dimensional fighter who couldn't hang with the more evolved fighters (Couture and Liddell).
That being said, he "hung" with a lot of "evolved" fighters and nearly subbed Machida and I thought he beat Rashad in the first one.
Her "career" consists of 6 wins in a very short amount of time, a title win, and a title defense. She won a bronze in Judo. She's 26.
For how young Rhousey's career is, she is incredibly accomplished. She's head and shoulders above her peers, never even being challenged in a fight. That's all DW was saying. I don't really see any compelling arguments to counter what he's saying (besides another hilarious sexist rant from Pashak).
Conversely, Cyborg is 10-1-1 with a title win, 2 defenses and one defense being ruled a no-contest. She won a bronze at ADCC 2009. She's 27.
Tito- He's a hall of famer, most fights in the UFC, most wins in LHW title fights, most consecutive lhw title defenses, etc.
I think my point stands.
If Rousey is already in the HOF in your book, I will digress immediately and respectfully refrain from any further debate with you.
