I mean seriously Tito is fighting again. I've been watching UFC since like UFC 2 and there is very few people I hate to watch. Frank Abbot, Royce Gracie before Time cap was put on, Maynard, and sometimes Couture. Then there is Tito Oritz He has some of the most boring fights and worst wins. However you definitely have to love to hate him and give credit to the fact that he did have 5 title defenses.
Just when you start smiling and think he going to be gone forever he ends up pulling off a win where you say what the $*%#? Most notably is the fight again Wanderlei Silva. Grr.... I still curse him for that. Then again against Vito Belfor, and Forrest Griffen. I remember that fight well cause I hit the table and said damn, and split my beer at the pub.
Then shortly after he started losing. I don't know how many but I know it was a lot. He ended up getting a draw against Rashad which still seemed fixed to me. Then loss, and loss again. He was going to leave the UFC finally. But, NOOOoooo..... He pulls off a win against Ryan Bader and because of him loosing we now have UFC 133 Ortiz vs Rashad tomorrow and I have to watch and put up with him again.
I guess that's what makes me love to hate him and why many like me will be watching.
My money is NOT on Ortiz. That said, he was deducted a questionable point in the last fight with Evans. With that point, he would have won.
I guess the topic is if I'd boycott the UFC if Ortiz beats Evans. Of course not. Without upsets, Fedor would be undefeated, BJ Penn would have destroyed Pulver in the first go-round, and Serra would have never won a world title.
It's fighting. Upsets will always be a major part of the sport. One lucky punch or last ditch submission effort could always get a fighter the win....it's a crazy sport.
Although I'm not picking Ortiz, I hope the old guy (35) pulls out the fight. I like the underdog.
One more thing we wouldn't have without upsets is the legend of Royce Gracie. Nobody gave that skinny, weak 170 pounder a shot to pull of the win over Shamrock in UFC 1.
