I agree.  A lot of people dump on their first two fights and say they were boring.  I don't get that argument - the first fight was a lot of fun with Ortiz dominating the first round and Forrest coming alive near the end.  The second fight was def not as good as the 1st - you could tell Tito was pretty rusty (see 3rd round) coming off of the long layoff post surgery. I hope Tito goes out with a win or goes out in a blaze of glory in his final fight.  No matter what I wil be watching for sure.
