"I told myself I would never take a fight like I did last year ever again. I promised myself I'd never do that, because I never want to give a guy an opportunity to beat me again. I feel great, man. I haven't felt like this in a long time. It's been a good six, seven years since I felt the way I do now. The last time I felt like this was when I had my world title. You're going to see at the weigh-ins how good of a shape I'm in. I'm in really, really good shape. My weight's about 220 right now. Usually it's about 215, 212, so I'm able to really stay in great shape, and do the wrestling, and do the squats and lunges, and stuff that I couldn't do before because of my lower back. Now that I'm able to do it, it's a blessing in disguise, as I say ... People have got to look at [my past] fights before they judge. I give my heart and soul every time I go out and fight and I give 100%. I lay everything on the line. I don't get dominated in my fights. I don't get knocked out in my fights. I don't do things that other fighters do that still compete and are main-event fighters. I think that's the way it is. Tito Ortiz always has controversy behind my name. I don't know why it is, but I give my heart and soul for the UFC. I have from day one and I will continue to do it."

Exactly. In the last 6 years, Tito says stuff like this before nearly every fight, only to be slow and non-explosive when the fight takes place, and then he blames it on an injury.

I predict the same thing will happen, Hammil by decision. Let's just hope he doesn't blame it on his cracked skull this time.

It depends on which Tito shows up. I haven't seen Tito look his best since Shamrock back in 2006. I would say it depends on injuries, but you never know with Tito. So far he's said he hasn't felt this good in years but he said that before t...he 2nd Griffin and Machida fight. So who knows if he's keeping any current injuries under wraps. I'm going to go with Hamill by decision but Tito can pull it off. Hamill is slow in his striking and he doesn't switch up his offense all that much, so Tito should be able to time him. I doubt Tito will have to worry about Hamill trying any takedowns because for some reason he thinks he's in K-1 or something. But yeah, I'll go with Hamill by UD cause you never know about Tito's injuries.

Doesn't he say this after every surgery and before every comeback?
