Those of youj who follow the UFC know who Tito is. I just found out that he had back surgery after an interview on Spike TV. I did some online research and found his site where he explains it further. I gather that he had a minimally invasive fusion (yeah, I know, sounds like an oxymoron). I'll be very interested to see how long his career lasts post surgery. As we all know, fusion is meant to restore a "normal" lifestyle as possible. I don't think professional fighting will be warmly received by his adjacent discs that are taking on a larger role in his spine. I hope I am wrong.
