Tito Ortiz vs. Forest Griffin
Going Dowin in April, 2006 , any thoughts on the outcome of this matchup? Will Tito come out strong after his lengthy absence, or fall to the new up and comer? Personally my vote goes to Tito

I think it will go to the ground and Tito will take it.

tito for sure. tito has been rolling with rampage, and i bet it goes ground.

I am going to go with Tito. I just hope it isn't another Franklin/Quarry in the making. That would be sad because I really like Forrest's attitude when it comes to fighting.

Tito is the obvious favorite here, but everyone likes griffin's attitude over tito. I predict tito will ground, mount, and pound forest for the win.

Tito has the upperhand, but Ill be rooting for Forest, I just like that guy and has more heart then most in the ring.

I think most people will go with Tito. He is a ADCC competitor and took 2nd or 3rd this year not sure. He has good wrestling and good ground and pound. We do know forrest has a good chin and I highly doubt the KO. Now people say Forrest is at his best on the ground and has a highly underestimated ground game. I think if Forrest can sprawl and Brawl his heart will get him the win. That being said I dont think he will win. I think it will be a UD for Tito or a late 3rd ref stoppage. Either way its a win win for the UFC. No one expects Forrest to win he goes out and puts on a good fight people will love him even more all he has to do is show heart. Tito wins he beat a "big name" and crowd favorite and will be back putting ass's in seats again. This match up is just a win win for the UFC.

Just be great to see Tito back, MMA needs him he is one funny guy, if he can get back and fight like he did against Ken at Vendetta UFC40, Griffin wont stand a shadow of a dancing queens chance

Ken took to much steroids and fought way to heavy, sad cause he really is a nice person in real life.

I think this will be a very good fight. I predict that tito will win by a decision. Forrest is too well rounded and has too much heart. The only way I see this fight not going the distance is if tito gets forrest on the ground and lands some solid elbows, which would stop the fight by a cut. But, again, I think that the will end in a decision in favor of tito. What is going to be interesting to see is how well Forrest avoids takedowns and who wins the stand up.

Forest Griffons manager should be fvckin fired
what a horrable match up, just like the Quarry/Franklin, wtf is wrong with these fight organizers? Tito obviously is going to win, Griffon is going to take alot of damage but keep going to make a good show to the viewers.
These kind of "set up" matches is why the UFC sucks

Im going to pick Forrest as a change of pace...Tito has lost what 2 out of his last 3? the only one he won was over the the inconsistent Belfort who gased out. Plus he had to crawl on his hands and knees back to UFC after he lowered his asking price to Pride 3 times and they still didnt want him even for a 1 fight deal. He is also prob taking forrest very lightly and I think he is past his prime....... Forest by KO with a straight right hand..first round. IMO
