Trash Talk? Rashad Evans has heard it all and it doesn’t faze him one bit. But it’s not the incessant smack being delivered by his opponent this Saturday night, Tito Ortiz, that has hardened the light heavyweight contender. Nah, as one of eight children, Evans learned his lessons in the fine art of gamesmanship years ago, before he even stepped into the Octagon.

I hope Tito gets beat too, he's nothing but talk in his last few fights. Other then beat on Shamrock, which wasn't impressive. And how boring he was against Cote (He should have whooped his arse) i have lost all confidence in Tito

The only thing that I have trouble with in this fight is that I believe Evans has fought people who aren't up to his calibur. With Ortiz, regardless if he's a punk or not, he can still fight and fight well. It seems that Evans fights the type of game that Ortiz likes and capitalizes on. Don't get me wrong, I hope Evans wins, but he'll need to bring a game that Tito isn't good at.

Agreed. I'm really really pulling for Rashad to win this one, but I see every matchup going in Ortiz's favor.

Tito is just the best at drawing fans and drawing money look at Franca-Sherk no one really cares about that fight because Tito has stolen the spotlight once again....Look at Titos last couple fights they were all really anticipated..With Griffin he sold out the pond...With shamrock he sold out Mandalay....With Shamrock again he drew the biggest rating ever for a fight nite......Tito vs Chuck that was like the biggest anticiapated match in Mma history.Hate Tito Ortiz or love him he is here to stay he is a huge fan favorite and is a great busnissman and fighter.
