That nearly happened, until it was leaked to Dana White and he put a stop to it. That could have got ugly. From my understanding, weapons were involved from both sides and loss of life was very likely
    No Sh*t??? that would have been nuts had Dana not gotten involved


    VATOS LOCOS FOREVER!!!!!

    I wonder why Dana didn't let them settle this in the cage? Although MMA was much less popular, this was something the fans wantes to see.

    How did Hughes and Tito end up not liking each other? I remember they had a close match at Abu Dhabi and of course their fighting styles were nearly identical back in the day - two unstoppably strong wrestlers
    The rivalry happened as a result of that night. Because of the melee, Frycklund was black balled by Dana White. Militech asked Tito to let Dana know that everything was squashed and no need to hurt the man's career over it. Tito refused, Frycklund was banned, and bad blood began to brew. Then Ricco, (Team Punishment) and Sylvia, (Militech) fought and more bad blood developed. There was lots of back and forth talk and there were some match ups between both camps that upped the stakes each time. I don't remember it well any more but perhaps Baroni fought a Militech fighter and there were others. Eventually no one from either camp could stand the other.

    Sorry, but it sounds unlikely that a 50 something year old who lives in California happened to be at that bar in Vegas and less than 20 feet away from this fight. Plus you told us you were an early bird, unless this happened before the sunset, I'd imagine you'd be in your hotel by dusk.

    I'm not questionning your version of events, but I think it's more likely that you heard about it from someone who was there.

    Actually Claudale, it was about 6000 miles form Las Vegas. The incident happened in London, England. I used to travel over seas regularly until my back got really bad. I attended the festivities and was there as a result.

    I think even if he was not drunk or wearing dress shoes that tito would go down if hit by murray in that scenario.

    Now in an mma fight tito would brutalize Murray.

    I think it's fair to say that Ortiz underestimated Murray. I'm sure the all night of drinking had something to do with it and the slippery dress shoes didn't help either. Of course Murray was in similar shape too, so take that for what it's worth. A street fight rematch would favor Ortiz IMO. A MMA fight would be a virtual lock for the HB Bad Boy. Not a good match up for the fugitive.

    Sorry Adolf, I don't believe you were there.

    If you happened to be in London at the same time as these guys and had a weekend to yourself, you'd be off to Amsterdam or visiting family in Germany.

    i guess we'll never know how it go now, unless Tito get thrown in jail in Morocco.

    Sorry Adolf, your being there is as likely as winning the powerball twice. But I'll let Metsfan decide.
