It appears that the choice for Ortiz’s replacement is former light heavyweight champ Forrest Griffin.
Griffin is coming off of a devestating loss to AndersonS ivla where he ran out of the octagon crying. Griffin needs to rebound with a win. The fight against a healthy and returning Ortiz will be no gimme.
This fight is actually a re-match of a prior fight which Tito won by split decision and is known as Griffin’s coming out party.
The bout will be a co-main event on November 21st.
