    I just finished watching it for the first time...IMO I think Griffin won the fight.

    I guess commentators were right...the last take down by tito gave him the slight edge...but that is bull because he didnt do crap on the ground. If anything Griffin was throwing elbows, trying locks, and punching. Tito was swinging and missing on the mat.

    Forrest put on a better show swinging for the fences and not giving up; Tito scored more points picking his shots and getting takedowns and deserved the win.

    Personally I would have given it to Forrest. I think the take down in the third won it for Ortiz, but he didn't hold him down any longer than a minute and didn't do anything with it. I can see why the Judges picked Ortiz though. I want to see a rematch.

    Forrest is the real deal.

    Maybe a little more credit then that... No he couldn't get chuck down nor could he exchange blows with him but he could probably make it a few rounds :hsd:

    So name someone that Chuck Liddell hasn't killed though? Does that make Ortiz/Horn/Babalu/Mezger/Overeem/white/etc... crappy fighters?

    no, even then that would be alot more than Ortiz did...all ortiz did was take him down and then did NOTHING with it.....just about the first time I ever saw Tito take someone down and literally not do a damn thing.

    Tito dominated the 1st round and if it had gone another minute he may have been able to finish griffin. I think Tito definately won. Forrest didnt ever really have Tito in trouble, Tito just gassed.
