Why do people always complain about Titos decisions that he gets during fights though. First when he beats Wanderlei by decision people are saying Wanderlei should have gotten it when Tito clearly won the fight. Forrest was owned in round 1. But in round 2 I say he won it. In round 3 however Tito won it again or it was a draw. I don't think Forrest won. Plus Tito had an injured knee so if they faught again Tito would probably beat him before decision.

I thought so too at first and I have watched this fight many many times over because I disagreed with the decision at first also. But, in the last two rounds, mostly the 3rd one, Tito was still the aggressor. That's a big part of the judge's score is aggressiveness. Tito was constantly moving forward and pushing the pace and Forest was basically just countering the entire time. Tito landed quite a few punches and jabs and so did Forest but the difference was that Tito was pushing the pace and Forest was being more defensive than offensive. I think they should have gone another 2 rounds myself but what are you gonna do? I think that this was one of the toughest fights to score but I think the judge's actually did a good job because they only watched the fight once, I watched it at least 3 times before I noticed all the stuff that they apparently noticed. Watch it again, it was just on SpikeTV UFC Unleashed. Tito won the first round (obviously), lost the second round due to the many failed takedown attempts and the lack of aggressiveness on his part and Forest landed a lot of clean shots, but the third round, which seems to be the toss-up for most of you, barely went to Tito not just because of the one takedown, but because he landed just as many shots as Forest did, but he was doing it as the aggressor this time.
ok I can see that.. still it was really close.. I am more of a defensive fighters when I did compete I am not a fan of the whole agressor gets the points because people have different fighting styles..

29-27 Tito, one of the judges scored it the exact same way

The problem with this is that UFC scoring rules make this impossible.
You can't have a 10-10 round.
