K Tito beat the living shit out of Forest in round 1 no doubt about that I would say that was 10-8 in favor of Tito. The second round Forest didn't get taken down one time and he landed plenty of clean shots on Tito, but also had a lot of flailing misses. Regardless Tito landed less shots than Forest and had multiple failed takedown attempts. Forest wins 10-9. Now the 3rd round was the same exact way up until the 2 minute mark or whatever it was when Tito finally got a takedown...but he didn't do jack shit when he did get the takedown, Forest stayed busy as hell on the bottom and eventually got back to his feet by himself. I don't see how one very lazy and weak takedown that barely gets your opponent to the canvas and then landing absolutely nothing from the top position and then having your opponent escape only about 1 minute later is grounds for a win. We could all be champions if that were the case.

Yeah, I was also quite surprised with the final decision. I thought Griffin had won too, but it was a close fight.

To be honest, Griffin could have easily won if he went for those leg kicks during the 3rd round. He kicked Ortiz once and made him winced in pain.

He should have definitely continued with those leg kicks, he can only blame himself for losing.

i dont see why ppl think forrest won... because he weatherd a beating and still fought?

tito owned him in round 1 on the ground.. which is tito's game..

forrest had tito standin up for 2 full rounds.. which is forrests game.. and he didnt do much at all

Griffin vs. Tito is just one of those fights that are that are so close, you feel kind of bad that there was a loser. That's why there will most likely be a rematch, hopefully in 2007.

Well then how can you say Tito won?? Neither of them finished but Forest had him where he wanted for a lot longer. I don't think Forest won, but I also don't think Tito won.

I think its one of those fights where its so close the judges choose whos more popular with the fans so they chose Tito. Better for publicity, I also think it was to close to call and would have rather seen a draw, it would make the rematch look so much more exciting, still looks exciting if it happens but it would also build more suspense making you wonder who is the dominant fighter.

A takedown is not all you need to win a decision but whenever its dead even and someone gets a takedown and nothing happens after that its obviously gonna go to the guy with the takedown.
Ok, we agree to disagree

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

"Since Tito had a torn ACL I'd say yes."

Tito had a torn ACL? I doubt it - it would absolutely have to be repaired to continue on in MMA (Although you could theoretically have one and fight but you'd be taking a big chance). Surgery would be a visible scar and an absolute minimum of 4 months rehab but more likely 6+ months. Torn meniscus or partially torn ligament is a more likely scenario.

Either way, Tito won a relatively close fight.
