That's right! UFC is now hosting Pride fights on their on demand system. Subscribers can now access fighters that were previously unavailable for download through legitimate means.

Who thinks that these fights should be free to download!! As an avid fan i order every PPV, attend a live event and bye merchandise, isn't that enough. Help spread UFC to the masses show them why you are the premier MMA org. Do not nickel and dime us for every product you provide. How many Jr. high kids went to your website today.....probably thousands, how many of that demographic have access to a credit card so they can watch there favorite fighters previous matches.....01%

The downloads are basically free at $1.99 each. They can't just give them away for free or people would be downloading non-stop and that would pretty much make it impossible for anyone to download.

LOL. He lets me down because
1) He makes excuses
2) He keeps getting hurt
3) He's not backing up his talk
4) He grabbed the fence
5) He's fading

The case at least could be made that he total owned Cote, he convincingly beat Forrest, he destroyed an geriatric Shamrock and quite possibly had a chance at defeating Liddell had the fight not been called when he was being punched in the arms. But Rashad... where is the excuse? Hurt back? Vaseline on the arms? It could all be true, but everyone else seems to be able to deal with it. If in his next fight against Rashad he doesn't come out and give it his all... I'm retiring him as my favorite fighter. I've been trying to figure out, what exactly causing tito to lose. It's not his striking, it's not his wrestling, it's not his BJJ or his clinch game. He's losing because he lost his heart. There's no heart left in his game. Until he gets that fire back, he gonna keep squeaking by with close decision victories.

BTW: This doesn't mean he's not a hard worker, but being a hardworker and having passion for your job are two different things.

Tito is losing his fights because MMA has moved on, but Tito hasn't. The days when a strong wrestler could wreak havoc in UFC are long gone. Yes, Tito is a great wrestler, but his strategy does not work anymore. People have learned to stuff takedowns. Tito is nothing without his takedowns, that's the end of the story.

I think Chuck has a very good chance. Chuck hasn't really been tested in the clinch but if he can stay out of it he can definitely land some heavy shots on Wanderlei. I still put Wanderlei on the win, but this is one of those fights where either can win with a big hit and most likely the fight will not reach later rounds.

Top 5? I'm having a hard time keeping him in the top 10 list... what is your reasoning?
