Tito and his big ol' noggin back in the UFC?
It appears that Tito is back on good terms with Dana. I listened to Dana say that the feud is over and they are in the process of working things out, just so long as Tito has made a full recovery from his back surgery. This was all on ESPN 1100. It was also posted by Dana from his twitter account stating "I am going on espn 1100 in vegas at 6pm. I will be talking anything mma. Call number is 702 364 1100! Oh yea and welcome back tito : )"
What do you guys think, will this actually happen? I for one wouldnt mind seeing Tito get his big head smashed around the octagon a few more times. But I gotta wonder though, will the massive ego's of Dana and Tito actually be able to work out a contract before a new war of the words starts back up and running between the two.

Tito should really drop the act though, I've realised with Lesnar, that, that kind of attitude is out dated and down right crap.

Dana continues on his mission, to have all things MMA belonging to the UFC. I'm not surprised, Dana said a long time ago that Tito had a place in the UFC back when they were needing people to watch. He helped to make Tito into what he was. Then when UFC got big, Dana didn't want the PR problems. But by then Tito was set in his ways.
Maybe Dana is trying to build the Brock/Tito **** house. Which would make UFC more Pro-wrestling ish. I sure hope not.

I am not a fan of Tito's seeming egoism or antics, but I think they cause many people to underrate his fighting prowess.
I believe Tito still has a place in the UFC. Tito has fought the last 3 guys to hold the UFC LHW belt, going 1-1-1. He beat Forrest, fought to a competitive draw with Rashad and lost to Machida. Tito didn't have an answer for Machida's skills, but neither has anyone else in the division. Tito at least made Machida look vulnerable - if only for a moment - with that triangle in the third round, which also shows he has a more versatile skill-set than many would give him credit for.
If Tito can continue to perform at that level post-back injury, he should fight in a premier organisation against top-level competition and he is better suited to the UFC than Dream, due to his name recognition in the USA, the cage and the rule-set.

Not surprised at all Tito's ego would never let him go to a number 2 organization
I always thought this was more posturing during his recovery than a real feud
Tito is a smart guy and knows where the real exposure and money is.
And contrary to Dana's statements tito is still relevant and a draw. He gave Machida one of his toughest fights.
And Machida Vs Tito part 2 is money, so is Tito VS Forrest part 2 and Tito vs Rashad.
Heck Tito vs Hendo is a good match and Tito Vs Rich
Like I said Tito is still $$$$

dana isnt stupid, he may still think tito is a knob head, but money trumps the head. dana will just make his money then get rid of tito when hes done.
