Really Tito?

I didn't think this ****** could sink any lower! On this week's "Inside MMA," Tito Ortiz reminds fans why he's the original bad boy of MMA with his comments about his future opponent Matt "The Hammer" Hamill. In a bizarre statement, Ortiz said that Hamill has no equilibrium because, "he's deaf so he has a soft head and you hit him with more and more shots." Hamill, who is deaf, trained under Ortiz on Season 3 of "The Ultimate Fighter," and will face him at UFC 121 in October. Does he have any idea how offensive that is to people with disabilities? Man I hope Hamill knocks the **** out of him. I know he's probably just "selling the fight" but he crossed the line and ran a marathon on the other side. I'm so pissed I'm shaking right now. I know I really shouldn't be but damn do you have any decency at all? http://www.sherdog.com/news/pressrel...HANDICAP-26137 Sorry for the rant but I'm so mad I had to do something.

I've long held the belief that in a sport full of meatheads and idiots, Tito Ortiz reigns supreme amongst morons.

I'm not sure it's offensive to say that someone without inner ear function has no sense of equilibrium.

What I found funny was that he said his strategy was to strike with soft shots - making it sound as if he usually has heavy hands.

In Tito's defense, he probably didnt think Hamill would hear what he said anyway.

Didn't Tito say he wasn't going to trash talk Hamill because of how much he likes him.

Don't harsh on the dude just because he's under educated.

Don't knock CSU Bako!

So, basically, Tito's being Tito. "Dog bites man," anyone?

Nah I was pissed about the second quote. I'm calmer now. Still hope Hamill KTFOs him though. Although I don't think that's true . Otherwise deaf people would fall down all the time.

The "soft head" was a bit out of place and strange. The "being babied" was over the line, though. Albeit much less offensive than some of the stuff that has been thrown around.

Tito is no doctor. I'm sure he has been educated on the subject by now. I don't think he was trying to be offensive but more likely than not that was/is what he believed.

That's what I meant. He was referring to Hammill's equilibrium. The second comment was still in poor taste.

The last thing Tito should be making fun of is someone else's head

I actually saw the interview on Inside MMA now, and the comments don't bother me at all. I don't know if it's true or not, but Tito was actually being serious when he said them and think's it's a legit strategy. He wasn't trash-talking or anything, he was stating medical facts that he knows or has heard.

Of course, Tito's medical dictionary is absolutely ridiculous and included vertabrae that have yet to be discovered yet.. so who knows where this info came from.

Yeah I just read the quote when I went on that rant and it seemed to me like he was just joking while watching. Not saying I like it but it is what it is. The soft head thing didn't bother me because that was just dumb but it was the babied part. My only thing is there should be a line but I guess Tito's never had one so why start now?

Tito is one of my favorites ever, and Koscheck is one of my modern favorites.

I'd take it to the bank as truth! Tito has extensive medical knowledge gained from researching viable excuses for losses he has/will occur.

That being said, I still love the guy and feel confident he'll dispatch of the hammer.

I just realized Matt Hamill's nickname is hilarious because there's a bone in the ear called the hammer too <_<

If people you don't know saying things about other people you don't know makes you mad enough to shake then message boards are probably the last place you should be. You could have a heart attack.

It's possible. Maybe it's my dislike for Tito shinning through. Lost it a little bit there for a sec
