Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has two fights left on his contract. He'll fulfill one of them this Sat., Dec. 10, 2011, at UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

But who does he want to be the last one? Question asked, question answered:

"I think me and Forrest Griffin, we got some unfinished business just because they gave him the last fight and I thought that was bullsh*t. That really annoys me a lot about it."

It would be fitting, in many ways, if that's the route the powers that be decided to go. Ortiz fought and defeated Griffin via close split decision back at UFC 59 in April 2006. The rematch didn't happen until Nov. 2009 and saw Griffin return the favor, as he took yet another close fight that ended by way of split decision.

Why not complete the trilogy as they both wind their career's down to a close?

The calendars match up. Ortiz will be available following Saturday night and Griffin is in the midst of a short sabbatical to care for his recently born child. By the time both are ready, anyone care to see them square off to settle the score once and for all?

Hear more from Ortiz after the jump, including his thoughts on Dana White and how he feels about his career as a whole.
