Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin were able to continue where they left off Saturday night. Both fighters made their way to the octagon accompanied by standing ovations from the crowd. Though it wasn’t an epic war like their first fight, the rematch still carried a high tempo and we saw two totally different fighters this time around. Both fighters were much more tentative and when all was said and done Forrest Griffin did enough to earn himself another unanimous decision victory.
“I did OK tonight,” Griffin said. “I felt a little sluggish; I’m ready for a rematch with Tito. - I want to improve on this fight.”
“It was a good fight, it was close, I thought I won a round,”” Bonnar said. “I wanted to win this one to have a rubber match, but how about we do best-of-five.”
