i bet his next one won't either.

The next one really can't be counted at a "Tito" pay per view because he will be fighting Chuck for his first fight back after they are finished coaching TUF. Not saying they will be the main event but it will probably be a bigger draw thant Tito/Griffin 2.

I am grateful to Scott Coker for the opportunity to help make this happen and for treating me with the utmost respect throughout our negotiations. I’d also like to thank Dana (White) and the UFC for the opportunities they provided me and I wish them ongoing success. I’ll continue to watch their events and I hope they’ll tune in to my fights in Strikeforce. After all, I’m a true fan of our fantastic sport and would love only to see MMA continue to grow."
That's what struck me too, a difference of night and day. Dan is a class act.

Yeah, I know, just pointing out that Tito historically has significantly higher star power than Hendo as evidenced by past PPV buys.

I don't think Tito has been a huge draw for the UFC in a very long time. I am willing to bet the last time was Chuck vs Tito and Chuck was the main reason for the huge draw. If you look at the other fight cards hes been on there were some damn good fighters and match ups.

Just look at UFC 8
