After two split decisions, at UFC 148 the judges were finally unanimous, with all three judges gaving Forrest Griffin the first two rounds, and Tito Ortiz the third.

Many fans felt that Tito earned the decision, in what is his final fight. However, Fightmetric backed up the judges decision, but there was a curious exception.

STRIKING: Griffin has advantage

GRAPPLING: Tito has advantage

OVERALL: Griffin has advantage:

 

HOWEVER... There was a strange difference in the scoring. Although Griffin won the overall score as seen above, a round by round breakdown shows Tito winning Round 1, with Forrest taking 2 and 3.

Either way Griffin wins, but the numbers a curious note to the last time we will see The People's Champ fight in the Octagon.
 

 

def. Tito Ortiz via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

I thought Forrest won 29-28. Tito had his moments but the vast majority of the fight was Forrest setting the pace and punching Tito in the face.


What is with the main article? It is horribly written and confusing. Was the person who posted it still drunk from last night ?


"Either way Griffin wins, but the numbers a curious note to the last time we will see The People's Champ fight in the Octagon".

What does this terribly written sentence even mean ?

Like a lot of other people I hate Tito winnning the 1st and the 3rd.

It's sad that # of strikes is all the judges seem to care about in the standup aspect. Tito knocked Forrest down in the 1st and 3rd. Ya, Forrest landed more but a lot of his punches were either partially blocked and/or had little force behind them. It's been obvious to many people for a long time that Forrest throws punches with a focus on scoring points, not cause damage to eventually put the opponent away. Like Blatnick said, the heaviness of the punches should be considered.

Also, if one guy gets knocked down and the other doesn't, obviously the guy who got knocked down likely was affected more by the punches. It's like the judges don't give a crap about how much force is on punches or how well someone can take punches. Landing the heavier punches, getting the knockdowns, and winning in the grappling department should've got Tito the 1st and 3rd rounds pretty clearly.

 titos knockdowns erases all of forrests pillow strikes... this was a horrible decision... but obviously what judge would give a retiring fighter the nod in a close fight?
