Yeah, it was posted somewhere here I think. People are reading too much into it, he later said it DOES NOT mean Tito is back in UFC. At least not yet.

I don't know what else it could mean, though. I'm guessing he jumped the gun and will officially announce it on 7/31 with the "other" announcements.

The big one actually might be that he's going to backflip off the Mandalay Bay. He said he would if UFC 100 did 1.5 million PPV buys. Apparently it did.

I wouldn't be surprised. I'm usually left rather disappointed after Dana's so-called "HUGE" announcements.

I remember the last time he said "huge announcement"(the lorennzo one), I was so upset, I flew into a rage at my comp. screen.

With everything thats happened this past week in MMA, and the fact that he said he had a grocery list of things to announce, i really don't see this being one of Danas over hyped announcements.

Yeah. Part of the reason to me is its always leaked by Dana ,or someone else somewhere on the net . Then we already know in advance. To us hardcore fans it's rarely news, but maybe to the casual fan it is.

I have faith that Vitor will be part of the announcements.

They're MY dream! I'd love to see the UFC groom Dan Lauzon into a star. As for Vitor...he's one of the reasons I started (and kept) watching MMA back in the day.

i knew all along that Mr. Ferrtita would step in and save the day.

Lets look at a fact here.
Last 3 (including current champs)
Lyoto Machida
Rashad Evans
Forrest Griffen.

Tito beat Forrest, Draw with Evan's, and nearly chocked Machida out (also took him to the limit in a pretty boring fight.....) What am i saying? Tito has become the man that spawns champs..... not a gatekeeper, a titlekeeper lol... NOW a 100% Tito i believe he is going to show he is still top 10, and i know he has improved his standup, and subs, i expect him to go on a run and get within 1 or 2 fights from a title shot where he may or may not win agianst lets say.....a future champ Jon Jones?!



Dana said that he's not back in the UFC on twitter so its not a done deal yet.


Yes tito and I made up Doesn't mean he's back it means we aren't smashing each other anymore and we don't hate each other.

I understand that. But to say "welcome back" doesn't make sense. I've never "buried the hatchet" with someone, so to speak, and announced "welcome back" to that person.
