How do you describe 2006 for Forrest Griffin? Did his gallant stand in a close decision loss against former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and a rematch victory over Stephan Bonnar make it his best year as a fighter, or did his devastating TKO defeat at the hands of Keith Jardine in December forever mark that 12 month period as the worst of his professional life?

I think it was still a strong year. He took a good one on the chin. Matt Hughes, GSP, Liddell, Couture and many more that got knocked out recently, but that does not hurt their progress previous

imo that knockout to jardine makes it a bad year for him. if he would have lost to machida thats one thing, and the fight with tito would not be a black mark if he had beat jardine, but with two losses and a bad showing vs jardine it was not a good year for him imo
