Tito Ortiz Vs Forrest Griffin Confirmed As New UFC 106 Main Event

With the Brock Lesnar Vs Shane Carwin title fight now postponed until January 2nd after Lesnar fell ill with the flu, UFC 106 on November 21st has been left without a main event.

Luckily for the promotion they have a potential main event already scheduled for the card.

“Stepping up into the main event slot will be the highly-anticipated rematch between former light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin,” the promotion reveals on ufc.com

Ortiz and Griffin had originally been slated to fight as the co-main event of the evening.  Though unlikely to draw the kind of PPV numbers that Brock Lesnar appears capable of doing, Tito Ortiz has been a considerable draw for the promotion in the past.

Whether he, and Griffin, who’s stock took a dip after being humbled by Anderson Silva in his last fight, can still capture the publics imagination remains to be seen.
