Let's hope Rampage doesn't land a judges job after his last fight cause he's way off base on this one. A couple knockdowns that don't lead to anything are hardly a basis for winning a fight.
I agree the score card but when it comes to the fight every significant thing that happened it was Ortiz doing it to Griffin. He was the one to rock Griffin and he was the one to take Griffin down. If this was Pride I would not be surprised if Ortiz got the decision. But with the scoring in the UFC Griffin is the clear cut winner.
I had Tito winning rounds 1 and 3 by very close margins. Largely based on impressions, maybe I'm weighting strike that knock your opponent to ground too heavily.
That said I can see the argument for the other side.
lol @ rampage still being mad forrest him....griffin won 2/3 rounds, period.
lol @ Rampage.
Forrest easily won 2 out of 3 rounds.

Forrest was doing decent damage with his shots, and I don't really feel Tito had Forrest in any real trouble except for a slight bit in the 3rd
Rampage is still just bitter over Forrest beating him and he won't let it go. Anyways, no Forrest won, there was no robbery of any kind. Forrest outstruck Tito by a large margin and did more damage. Tito took him down and Forrest got back up each time except for the quick takedown Tito went for at the end just to try and sway a judge in case he got the takedown. Tito rocked him twice, but it wasn't like Forrest was completely out of it and he recovered from it well.
I don't know what you could possibly argue to say Tito won. Tito was outstruck 4:1 or 5:1, that's bad enough, but if you look at their faces, Tito's face looked fucked up, Forrest looked relatively fine.
Here's a link to Ortiz's face: http://l.yimg.com/os/388/2012/07/08/...jpg_160922.jpg
Here's a link to a Helwani interview of Griffin: UFC 148: Forrest Griffin Told to Get the 'F' Back in Cage by Dana White - YouTube
Who looks more damaged? I don't see any argument. Griffin landed more, tagging Ortiz the whole time. Ortiz got a takedown and did very little GnP and two knock-downs - that doesn't win you a fight where you eat 250+ strikes.
tito did not do more damage, where was the legendary ground and pound nowhere to be found no slams just soft takedowns that forrest got up from, and it was really just one knockdown the one he rolled back on and got right back up, did you see tito's face at the press conference? forrest did that its not all pitter patter he had tito in danger in atleast two points in the fight
of course rampage thought tito won rampage and tito roll together no gi no cups, rampage and tito both move the same at this point in their careers, very slowly.
I was fine with the decision. I am with pops though and could see how some people might see it differently. I thought Forrest did enough to win the fight, Tito definitely dropped him twice. If you could make rounds draws then those two rounds would be washes and Forrest would still win the deciding round.
I had to give the fight to Forrest as well, he was busier and landed more, Tito blew his wad in the 3rd and could not do anything the last 2 minutes....
