This past Saturday brought out a great fight as Forrest Griffidana whiten took a split decision victory over opponent Tito Ortiz at UFC 106. While Ortiz fans believe he won the fight, there is just no logical way to score the bout in his favor. Griffin evaded damage with Ortiz in his guard and was the better man on the feet for 15 minutes.

While Griffin’s victory was no surprise after witnessing three rounds of the two giving it their all, a split decision with such opposing scores was indeed a shock. Fans have been increasing in uproar over “controversial” decisions and the need for better judging has never been more evident. UFC President Dana White elaborated on this to the press…

“When you watch a fight like [Ortiz vs. Griffin 2] and you hear a 30-27 score, I don’t even know, I’m so exhausted by this whole thing. It’s tiring. It’s terrible. These athletic commissions need to start looking at this and figure out what they’re going to do. It has nothing to do with me. You should see the emails I get, ‘You scumbag, you’re just like Don King.’ That’s what people think. People think that we pick who’s going to win or lose and tell the commission to do it. Talk to (Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission) Keith Kizer. He’s the guy you want to ask questions to. Call Keith Kizer and ask him, what can we do to fix the judging and scoring?”
