How does Tito's fabled ground and pound go at heavyweight, scurla? What's that? It's irrelevant because the man never fought at heavy, you say?
Yeah I don't really understand how the discussion turned to Jones at hw. Not relevant to this thread really. Can't believe I'm kind of on the same page as Haggis here.
For what it's worth, I'd say Tito enjoyed size advantages in his time at lhw as well. He was often just a bigger, heavier guy than the average lhw contender. Tito is very big compared to Kondo, Tanner and even Wanderlei.
