He is 2-2 in his last 4 fights and his next fight is against Mauricio Rua. I, and many others are picking against Forrest in this fight. So if Forrest loses he'll be 2-3 and struggling to beat top tier guys as of late so he'll be perfect for Tito. If he loses to Tito, he's done. Forrest is fading quick and a win over Tito can only help.
6-5 in his last 11 fights is not getting it done. He seems to be fading as well. It would be a good matchup of wrestling and good hands from Rich and Tito. Have this as a co-main event and it would sell tickets. Rich is a fan favorite and Tito has LOTS of fans, but lots of haters as well. People will pay to watch Tito get knocked around by a math teacher.
Last, but not least. Truthfully, this is a fight I think Tito can win. Vera is a tough opponent but it would be a good victory for Tito to ride off into the sunset happy. He'll be happy, fans will be happy, and most importantly Dana will be happy.
Good luck Peachy.

he wouldn't even be in the UFC if Thiago Silva didn't roid up..
I say think BIG
I'd love to see Hendo vs Tito..
Hendo and Tito have given sooo much to the mma community, and have never fought each other.
I'm not going to predict the Fedor vs Hendo matchup, but with Tito's big win, he shouldn't be fighting Brandon Vera..
I mean, Bader was 14-1 coming into the fight, i didn't even think Tito had a chance. Boy was a wrong..
Tito vs Hendo.. both future hofamers and an interesting matchup to say the least.
I'd rather walk to the grocery store and buy a loaf of bread, over watching Vera fight right now.

Hendo v. Tito?
Do you really want to see your boy get slapped around like that? Hendo is a LWH champ as of right now. He still has the skills obviously. I would take Hendo over Rich/ Forrest in a fight right now.
Hendo has better wrestling and better hands then Tito. Tito is on the downside of their careers while Dan has a little left in the tank considering he is a LWH champ. Rich, Forrest, Vera won't be getting a chance for the belt anytime soon so they are perfect for Tito. Tito doesn't deserve a chance at the belt and nor will he get one.
There is really no point for him to fight Hendo. Tito just wants to keep fighting to get the pay check. He's done enough for the sport of MMA and now it's time for him to move on. Say he loses to Franklin/Forrest but has an "easy" win against Vera. He'd be a happy camper.
People will remember him for his last win over Vera before they remember his loses. He's done enough for the sport he deserves to leave as a winner.
Hendo would KO his ass. Vera would put up a fight but Tito could come out with the W.

it's not all about the W, it's about Tito trying to go out a legend..
fighting Brandon Vera isn't going to do sh8t for his legacy, since he's my "boy" like you said, i don't want him to fight that has been prospect.. hahahahahh..
Tito didn't get knocked cold by Rashad Evans like Chuckeee pooh..
My next change..
Rich Franklin.. yeah cool.. he ko'd Liddell.. Tito shouldn't fight him either.. Vitor BElfort made Rich look like a cup cake..
Rich Franklin is a future hall of famer in my opinion, but he doesn't have the marketability like Tito.. He's kind of a boring character in the UFC world.. We pay for characters.. it's a proven fact.. He is a frkn vet, he just beat the Ultimate Fighter winner..
put Tito in there with Randy Couture.. Randy knows he doesn't want to go out like he did to Machida, we want call him the UFC's Favre.. lol
Chuck's chin is skeeent.. Couture could post a good figght against Tito.. Chuck is still on the UFC roster.. Tito should call Couture out, that would be more than a Franklin fight..

I don't think you realize that Tito isn't that good anymore. We all know he has one win since December of '06.
Now you are underrating Rich Franklin's ability. Rich has fought a good resume of fighters. This would not be a cupcake win for Tito. In fact, some would pick against Tito in this fight. With a clash of the same styles it would be a good sell.
If Tito wanted a cupcake win, he would fight Randy Couture. That would demolish is reputation. What would people say. "He (Tito) can't be top talent so he has to fight an old, washed up legend?"
Tito is all about his reputation and ego. That would be a blow to both of them. Franklin and Forrest are perfect talent for Tito. They aren't dominate, but aren't chop liver. Tito can't stand with the best of them, he never could. Vera would put up a fight which he has a history of. He would be a good match up for Tito.
Randy and Dan aren't good matchups for Tito: Randy is useless in today's MMA world as a fighter. Dan is at the top of his game right now as the Strikeforce LWH champ.
Good luck Peachy.
