Could the Tito that was LHT champ beat HWT tank?  Tank was a fat slob and past his prime but he could turn the lights off with one punch.  Would Tito be favored in this fight and most likely win?

I think Tito was afraid of Tank in his younger days but he was a much better fighter and probably wins.

Smart money is on Tito. The guy can't English for shit, but he was a pretty intelligent fighter as well as skilled.

I'd say Tito is as good or better wrestler that Frye or Severn. Think Tito takes down and pounds. But tank has that one punch solution. 80-20

Maybe Tito will tell another story about Christopher Walken and a lion and a jackal...

This surprises me but I don't know anything about wrestling. I always thought Severn was a wrestling God.

Tank gave Tito the cracked skull.

I might be completely wrong but the version of Dan we saw was past his prime. A prime Severn probably was better than Tito most likely

Tank lost to almost every good fighter he fought.
His best wins are likely Duarte, and the rematch with Cabbage.

Smart money is on Tito, who would just have to stay safe early before our working a gassed Tank.


Only x-factor would be that when Tito was a dominant LHW, it was against smaller fighters than himself.

But the best version of Tito -- the Tito that beat Matsushenko and old man Shamrock -- should absolutely beat Tank by sticking to a gameplan.

Severn is absolutely a better wrestler than Tito.
He's also a big strong HW.

Tito excelled at using his wrestling well for MMA -- and when it's all said and done, was probably the more well rounded/evolved mixed martial artist than Severn.

But that doesn't mean early UFC Severn wouldn't throw Tito around.

Young scrappy Tito might have dropped an L to Frank Shamrock, but that version of Tito would have killed Tank.

How good of a wrestler was tank in his prime?

Tito’s skills and career are so underrated. He was a beast and carried the org for a time.
