Well kids, aside from a few tense seconds Saturday night, Rashad Evans moved past Tito Ortiz handily, stopping him with some brutal body work in the second round and moving on to his date with the champ, any champ, whenever said champ is ready to fight him.
Left behind is the guy that was the face of the UFC for years, who was able to enjoy being back in the win column for all of five weeks before being relegated to the losers’ heap. Tito Ortiz made a great effort, but he ran into a younger, faster, more explosive version of himself, and he came up short. So how does Tito go on from here?
Well, not that anyone asked us, but we thought we might throw out a few ideas to get Tito back in the cage. First, keep in mind our theory that anyone who needs a fight at 205 or at 185 can be slotted against Chael Sonnen for maximum pre-fight hilarity; obviously that still holds true here. Of course, that would almost make Sonnen’s job too easy, and his talents are best utilized elsewhere.
Come on in past the jump and find our not-quite-serious list of five fights that Tito could get next, then share your own wisdom in the comments. We realize that “wisdom” is probably giving you people more credit than you’re due, but it’s Monday: the bar is set really low.
