Not very big news here. I thought he was gone, so it doesn't make much of a difference for it to be official now. I'm thinking he will be signing with Affliction.

yeah right? him saying this now, after his post fight comments about dana and the ufc make me feel like he was hoping the ufc would offer him a contract. i'm glad he's out. while he was one of the greats, his talent has dwindled and i think his dedication to fighting is gone. it's all about marketing tito now. let him join the side show.

Good. He'll still whine about his pay when he joins another organization. He'll win his next fight (against some chump) and will then fight for a belt - and lose.

He won't go to Affliction because he cant win there. He wants the glory. he wants to be a Champ so I say he goes to EliteXC and becomes their new poster-boy and then he'll get the undeserved spot light just like Kimbo.

I think a great home for Tito would be EliteXC I mean he'd probably be the best there but then a possibility of a Tito v. Kimbo fight would be possible.
