Tito walked out to “Real American” and he had a shirt on that said “Living The Dream” with the logo similar to the WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event logo.
Round 1: Tito dominated the round and landed some heavy shots on the ground. With 1.54 left in the first round, Tito took Alberto’s back and choked him out. Alberto tapped. Alberto and Tito hugged after the fight. Alberto did not look good at all in this fight.
