Tito Ortiz may have just booked his first win since 2011, but TJ Grant remains unimpressed.

I see what is happening here... Tito obviously isn't afraid to beat up on dudes half his size. Let's make this happen! T.J. Grant vs Tito Ortiz for the Wamma "All-Weights" Belt.

Wow what a damn fool. Why don't you come back and fight or keep it closed?

Let's not forget almost everybody counted Tito out. Nobody even thought he'd make it to the fight. Give the man a fucking break.

TJ Grant has to keep himself relevant since he's in a coma or has cancer or something (it's a joke, I know he has a concussion)...

What better way than to scoff at Dana White's arch enemy.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Not only did he have trouble getting them, but the shots he was taking trying to get the takedown looked just plain sloppy and slow to me. Tito of 10+ years ago would scoff at those attempts. Back in the day they were explosive and quick shots, now they look like the exact opposite. Maybe it was ring rust, but I personally thought they were terrible. Tito should just go off on a high note and retire with the win. He won't be graced with an opponent who is that much smaller than him every time out.

Tj needs to focus on coming back sometime this fall
He has a lot of momentum. Hope he doesn't lose it due to cage rust

Really Tito did look terrible. He was gonna crumple I thought if it stayed on the feet. He was like a dinosaur standing.

But credit to Tito, he did the one thing he needed to do. He got the smaller less capable grappler to the mat in an advantageous position and capitalized. That is what it's all about.

I don't get why anybody is giving Grant grief for giving a honest and accurate assessment of Ortiz here.
