"After [he ran] out of the fight, that shows that he lost and for Dana to go back and run and get him to come back, there’s something fishy going on here," Ortiz said to GNP.tv in a recent interview. "How does Dana know how the match is going to turn out? I thought something was fishy about that. Was it premeditated? Was it pre-planned what the answer was going to be? If If didn't knock him out or if I didn't submit him, they already knew who was going to win."
Ortiz, it seems, is suggesting -- or at least questioning -- the possibility that the UFC might have had a hand in the decision from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC)-appointed panel of judges. It simply doesn't make sense otherwise, considering Ortiz (in his view) completely dominated Griffin despite losing a unanimous decision.
Two knockdowns, which took place in the second and third rounds, respectively, as well as numerous takedowns and unrivaled kick-checking ability far outweighed anything that Griffin did throughout their 15-minute "Fight of the Night" in "Sin City."
"I thought I won, all my fans thought I won," Ortiz explained. "When you drop a guy twice, take him down four times and you dominate by doing it … He never took me down. He never hurt me…. For the first time ever in UFC history, they showed strikes attempted -- not strikes landed, strikes attempted. When do you ever show somebody with strikes attempted? He never hit me, I blocked all of them, I checked all of his kicks."
