Rumour is that Mark Coleman has pulled out on his upcoming UFC bout against Tito Ortiz that was scheduled for UFC 106 in November....
The word is that its injury related, but I could think of a better reason for The Hammer to pull out...NO ONE CARES!!
It really is a lose-lose fight for both of them.... Their both washed up and regardless of the outcome, its not going to rejuvenate their careers....
Nigga tore his ACL, give him a break.
I hear Rashad may be taking his place. However, though I stand to be proven wrong, I think Tito is far from washed up. Ring rust? Hell yes. But remember when he last fought? In his last 6 he beat Griffin, beat Rashad (declared a draw because he had a point deducted for holding the cage) and went the distance with Machida almost catching hin in a triangle at the end. Hardly seems like he was washed up when he started his semi-retirement.
I just saw Tito at the KOTC event in Cali last week. He was nice enough to take a moment to stop and pose for a pic with my fighter. He was also nice enough to yell instructions at my fighter from the front row during his bout.
Ok, this might be a YMAS material but... Am I the only one who noticed the gay sex reference of the thread title????
In his last 6 he beat Griffin
No, he didn't.
I'd agree Tito has something left. After all, he's the only fighter to ever put Machida in any danger. Coleman would've been a good warm-up matchup.
I have to agree, I think Tito is far from washed up. Also he has been training over at wildcard, so you would think that his boxing skills would be sharp.
Still he needs a warm up. If he went against Evans now you would think to think that he would be KTFO.
Coleman has pulled out of two out of three of his last fights.
I'd like to see him fight Forrest again actually.
Hey, check it, I was right.
I thought that made sense.
Now that fight I am interested in.....Forrest needs this win.....
Now, it is true that Ortiz was able to almost choke Machida, but you gotta remember, BEFORE that Ortiz couldn't do ANYTHING. He didn't land a single punch, kick, elbow, knee.............nothing. First fight I had seen where someone couldn't even hit a guy once.
True, but Forrest isn't exactly known for his elusiveness.
Also you have to think how many people have landed a decent hit on Machida? Tito was never known for his stand up.
Forest is a MUCH harder prospect for Tito (especially after his last loss) this is a must win match for both fighters.
My monies on Forest. (by decision)
Now that the cat is out I can say when I was told about Forrest fighting Tito I was really excited. Forrest is just a tough SOB and loves fighting.
Regardless of his last fight he is still a gamer and we all love to see him fight. Fact of the matter is I think that the US may be coming around just wanting to see 2 exciting guys fight each other. The standings and the belt talk are all good but just having two guys fight because they love it is much better. These usually give the better fights any way.
