Is Tito Ortiz looking past Forrest Griffin for a possible third crack at 'The Iceman'?

"I know I’ve lost two matches. I still think I can beat him, and I still think that’s a big fight. I still want that fight. That would be awesome. I think if I call him out enough times I think he’ll be a man and step up. Why wouldn’t he? That’s a huge fight and a big payday for him. It will be good. I think we can see one more. Why not? I’m down. I’m always game. You know me, I’m not afraid to fight anyone, even though there was a picture that was painted a long time ago that wasn’t true. I’ve fought him twice already. I’m not afraid. He already proved he’s not my friend, so the hell with it. I’ve got nothing to lose. Lets make some money, and this time I’m going to kick his ass."

One time UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz is still hoping to one day avenge his two losses to fellow former headliner Chuck Liddell. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is coming off major spinal fusion surgery to correct a back problem that plagued him in his most recent bouts. His last appearance was in May 2008 — a unanimous decision loss to now 205-pound champion, Lyoto Machida. Does a UFC 106 win over Forrest Griffin propel him back into the title hunt? Or would any fans out there rather see him tangle with "The Iceman" for a third time instead?
