So, Griffin and Ortiz must be just about the two most closely matched fighters on the planet.

I have a pitiful 48 points. Should be 59 with Tibau though, IMO.

That was a much better fight than I thought it would be. Could of went either way...I've never seen a fight so close with so much difference in output.

Griffin shows grappling against Franklin, but doesn't seem to in other fights.

I think that's just because of the size difference. Franklin is a small LHW and Griffin is a massive LHW. Griffin's not a great wrestler, he can just use his size against certain guys and not against others, I think.

Good point, and I think he gets into brawls or tries to stand too much even with his submission game.

well I got 11 points for that, but I am sort of disappointed that I got those points.

6-4 59 points.

Maybe Pael Sonnen spent too much time posting on the PG.

Sorry to all those of you that were hyped for this event.
