I don't blame Tito.

He's been in nhb/mma a long time. Also unlike the majority of fighters he's made some good money.

Retire and enjoy life.

He made a few million in Bellator alone....

With him tho its his neck I'd be worried about hes had a few serious neck injuries.Good for him,

Probably too late for him, and most any fighter.

best time for him to go out. He was on a good win streak and ended his career in an amazing high note. What more was there for him to do really?

Every fight he made 300,000 plus sponsor money .....4 fights thats 1.2 million in only pay add in sponsors thats a nice chunk of change.

I can't blame Tito here, but personally I would have liked to see him fight more, especially since he pulls good numbers for Bellator and looked good.

Also, InfinityLens, can you start posting at least some of the article to go with your link? Adding your own comments would be good as well; so we don't have a bunch of threads with just links and nothing more in it. Thanks

1.2 million isnt a "few million" in your words then

After some of his comments surrounding the Fedor fight he may be willing to fight yet.
