i wouldn't be surprised if Tito calls it a career at this point. he already suffered a bad back injury and i think, depending on the severity of this neck injury, this might be it for Tito.

If not now then soon, I don't think he can take out Chuck....the guy just has his number IMO. Future competition is all young, healthy, and multi talented....I just don't think he can hang with this level of competition. If he stays in the UFC you know they aren't going to feed him cans....and IMO any top 10 LHW in the UFC should be able to take him out at this point. Just run the businesses and rake in the $.

I thought Tito said he injuries during the Griffin rematch, which is why he didnt shoot late in the fight. I dont remember.

No no no before the fight he was talking about how he was 100% and had not been that way for some time but after back surgery he was now it was his time to make it back to the top

Until this is confirmed by another reputable website, I'm not ready to believe it. I wouldn't be surprised, though.
