Why does Dana hate Tito?
What did Tito do to make Dana hate him? Also, I heard Frank Shamrock also hates dana. Can anyone clue me in?

Tito's a mouthy bitch. Maybe that's why...You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Probably a love triangle gone bad.

I'm guessing because Tito was fighting over in Pride for a while."Emevas,

Money. Plain and simple. Tito was one of the first who refused Dana's chicken feed. You see it more and more now but Tito was one of the first. Frank was another.
Now you guys who think Tito is a jerk are going to change your tune.
I met Tito back in 1999 at my first fight. I have met him 2x since then. Every single time he has been VERY cool and very personable.
The image of the badboy asshole is just for show. It markets him and makes him popular. He talks some **** but if you notice it is very focused and direct and always intended for a specific response. Compare this to Baroni who is a complete asshole to everyone at all times both on and off the camera.

I was pleasantly suprised by Tito. I met him once and he was very nice (I barely knew who he was, this was prior to my entering bjj and any major interest in mma) but heard so much bad about him I had expected the worst.
Instead he was nice, seemed genuine and was willing to work with his guys (and brought in Dean Lister instead of some jackass bodybuilder).
In contrast we have Shamrock "demanding respect" while getting all puffychested and in Tito's face after Dana told him to act cool. What a fucking moron meathead.

On the other hand, I always thought Shamrock's demands for respect was some sort of chivarly and personal code of behavior (and really, to be honest, it was very crass of Tito to flip the bird at the Lion's Den in public.) But the more that I see it, the more that I'm getting convinced Shamrock is acting senile. :tinfoil:
There is a different between being a hard-working gent with a, perhaps, out-of-time sense of honor, and being anal-retentive. For a man in his 40's, he should act more like it, just let it go and show he is (or could be) a better man. :icon_puke

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I see. So i wasnt the only one surpised by Tito in this first episode of TUF 3. Why the hell did shamrock bring in a Bodybuilder instead of a grappling guy. I really dont understand that at all. i guess this will be a pretty interesting season.

Frank Shamrock called Dana White "an egomaniac Uncle Fester looking knucklehead" in a recent interview. That kinda cracked me up.
