Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin III set for UFC 148 supercardPosted on March 20, 2012, 08:06 AM by Anton Gurevich
Mixed Martial Arts legend Tito "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Ortiz will go to war for the last time in his career, facing Forrest Griffin in a trilogy bout at UFC 148, currently scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 7th.
Ortiz is on a negative 1-6-1 streak in his last eight bouts, winning only against Ryan "Darth" Bader back at UFC 132 (July 2nd, 2011). Against Griffin, Ortiz will return to the same arena where he defeated Bader one year ago, looking to end his career with a "W".
First fight between Ortiz and Griffin took place back at UFC 59 (April, 2006), with The Huntington Beach Bad Boy getting his hand raised via a Split Decision. The pair met again back at UFC 106 (November, 2009), and once again the judges were split on their decision, only that this time it was Forrest Griffin who left the arena victorious.
UFC 148 quickly shapes up as one of the most promising cards of 2012; Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz rematch is expected to headline the card, which already includes high-profile bouts such as Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le, Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch, and of course Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin 3.
