In April of 2006, Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin engaged in an unforgettable three round battle that left fans demanding a rematch between two of the best light heavyweights on the planet. On Saturday, November 21st, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Ortiz and Griffin will finally meet again in the co-main event of UFC 106: Lesnar vs. Carwin.

This long-awaited rematch came about when Ortiz’ original opponent for UFC 106, Hall of Famer Mark Coleman, was forced to withdraw from the bout due to a MCL tear in his knee suffered during training camp. Stepping into the bout is Griffin, who is looking for redemption against Ortiz after losing a razor thin split decision to “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim on April 15, 2006.

In that bout, Ortiz tore into Griffin at the opening bell, almost finishing the fight with his trademark ground and pound attack. Amazingly, Griffin survived the assault and roared back over the next two rounds, teaming with Ortiz for an instant classic. After 15 minutes, the judges declared Ortiz the winner, but the back and forth nature of the bout made it a natural for a rematch.

In November, with both men having weathered the ups and downs of the fight game over the last three years, they meet again.
