Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin Rematch Set for UFC 106

Forrest GriffinTito Ortiz’s return to the Octagon at UFC 106 on November 21 in Las Vegas will be a rematch with fellow-former light heavyweight champ Forrest Griffin, the promotion announced late Thursday.

Ortiz, who was left without an opponent after Mark Coleman withdrew from the co-main event earlier this week, previously defeated Griffin by split decision at UFC 59 in April 2006. “The Huntington Beach Badboy” returns to action for the first time since a May 2008 loss to Lyoto Machida and is 0-2-1 since his last win in October 2006 over Ken Shamrock.

Griffin briefly held the 205-pound title after defeating Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last July, but is coming off back-to-back losses to Rashad Evans and Anderson Silva.
