Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 106. “Ortiz vs. Griffin 2” will air Saturday night via Pay-per-view (in the US) beginning at 10:00 p.m. EST (under card on Spike at 9). This card features a main event rematch between former light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
As a lead writer here, there’s a certain “responsibility” for making quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 166-103 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I, Gray D., see the action inside the cage going down from Las Vegas.
