I personally think people don't respect him enough in general.

He was a great champion, beat some good guys, and lost to some good guys.

Almost beat Machida when he was elusive (yes it was via a triangle in the dying seconds, but you know what I mean).

Beat a very game Ryan Bader, but it seems that people let his personal life cloud their minds with what he has done for the sport in the dark ages (RE Jenna/abuse scandal/etc).

It's definitely time for him to retire after Griffin (win/lose) but the man does deserve respect, regardless of what turmoil his personal life consists of.

And I'm not Tito :).

He was relevent for his time but he would be better served moving his career in a new direction.

Training others, clothing/gear line, etc.
