It's another style vs style thing. Ortiz is always better than Forrest until he gets tired, whether it takes one round or two. I don't think Forrest is as good as he once was, but he was still good enough to beat Franklin a little over a year ago. I don't know how well Sonnen's take downs are going to be at 205, but I don't think he can ride Griffin to a 5 round decision win. I think Griffin takes the fight over whenever Sonnen tires, that's if Sonnen can put Griffin on his back, and finishes Sonnen late.
