    UFC: The Final Chapter (Tito vs. Shamrock) Official Thread

    HOLLYWOOD, FL, October 9 – Ken Shamrock came to the weigh-in for his final fight with Tito Ortiz armed with a sandwich and shake; Ortiz just brought a scowl. But with both UFC stars appearing to be in supreme shape for their bout at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena, it’s clear that both did bring their ‘A’ games to the Sunshine State.

    Ortiz, the former UFC light heavyweight champ, came in at a relatively light 203.5 for the third bout of his series with Shamrock, who weighed in at a ripped 204.5 and showed his ease at making the weight by sipping a drink and taking a bite from a sandwich as he made his way to the scale.

    In their first bout in November of 2002, Ortiz stopped Shamrock after the third round. A rematch at UFC 61 in July saw Ortiz halt ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Man’ again, but the stoppage by referee Herb Dean was seen as premature by many fans, leading to Tuesday’s third bout, which will be aired live on Spike TV beginning at 8pm.

    “The fans deserved to see a fight and it was stopped short,” said Shamrock of his second bout with ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy.’ “If I’m gonna go out, I’m gonna go out a warrior.”

    Ortiz refuses to let Shamrock get the last word though.

    “You guys are gonna see a great beating tomorrow night,” said Ortiz. “This is my life right here.”

    All other fighters on the nine bout card made weight, with the only hiccup coming from returning welterweight veteran Tony DeSouza, who was forced to the scales a second time to make 171 pounds for his bout with Dustin Hazelett.

    The Vegas odds for Ken are 100 to 1. I don't think the UFC has had a match this one sided in a long time.

    I don't see Ken winning through anything less than psychological warfare. Maybe if he dances to the ring like Gono does, Tito will be sufficently freaked out for Ken to get a submission.

    100 to 1 is about right. Maybe Tito will trip in the ring and KO himself.

    I can dream, can't I?

    Jason MacDonald vs Ed Herman was a surprising match. Jason dominated.
