The main event at UFC 106, a rematch between Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz, has split the MMA community in half. While Forrest lost the first contest, he has steadily improved since, on his way to a light heavyweight championship. Tito has continued his slide, victim of age and injury. Does he have enough to win the rematch, fresh from back surgery? Everyone has an opinion, including MMA fighters:
Marcus Davis: "I would like to see Forrest do his thing. But I heard Tito is all healed up. I want to pick Forrest but he's been on such a bad streak. My heart says Forrest. But if I had to put money on it, I would pick Tito."
Tim Credeur: "I see it going for Forrest. He's just advanced so much as a fighter in the past few months since the Anderson Silva thing. There was a lot of pressure on Forrest to perform. He really didn't like the pressure, and it was really frustrating him. There were a lot of things involved with his mindset. After that fight, it really gave him the ability to release a lot of stuff and just take a load off. And since then, his game has just really, really gone through the roof. All of his training partners express the same feeling. He's learned to love the game again. I think he's going to finish Tito."
Pat Miletich: "I gotta pick Griffin based on heart"
