Doesn't matter how busy you are on the bottom you are still on the bottom and in the UFC if you don't submit him you will lose from the bottom. its a chance all BJJ guys take in the ufc. they lose more decisions than they win. unfortunate but true
Ya its easier for the Diego-Alessio fight to go either way cuz both guys pushed the action, Tito wasnt really pushing the action in his fight.. outside of the first round all he did was go for takedowns.. he only had 1 round of sucessful takedowns.. I didnt see a sucessful takedown after that 1st round, IMO the takedowns Griffin defended shoulda scored more points then the last Takedown in the 3rd round by Ortiz cuz he didnt do anythin but take elbows from Griffin.. so I felt Forrest won that fight, but then again it was easy for the Judges to give it to Tito and the UFC looks better with Tito winning so why not?
what bugged me is Tito gets the decision, and as soon as the mic is in front of him
OHH I HAD INJURIES booo hoo then afterwards claiming that Forrest cheated.. never seen such a sore winner in my life.
