The entire card is the definition of yawn-fest to me. I didnt know Ortiz was still around at all.
If you think Kos vs Johnson will be a yawnfest, you are basically high.
Tito "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin
Josh Koscheck vs Anthony Johnson
Amir Sadollah vs Phil "New York Bad Ass" Baroni
Luiz "Banha" Cane vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Karo "The Heat" Parisyan vs Dustin Hazelett
Ben "Killa B" Saunders vs Marcus "The Irish Hand Grenade" Davis
Paulo Thiago vs Jacob Volkmann
Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove vs Jake Rosholt
Brock Larson vs Brian Foster
Caol Uno vs Fabricio Camoes
George Sotiropoulos vs Jason "Dynamite" Dent
Koscheck-Rumble, Karo-Timberlake and Cane-Minotoro are worth a look. I'm sure this card won't disappoint, specially watching Forrest get pwned by Tito in the final 10 seconds of the 3rd. Tito via triangle FTMFW. Timberlake via sick armbar FTMFW as well.

Uno, cuz he's Uno.
And last but not least, Hazelett, via wizard beard tickle submission.
This is one of the few cards where I actually am looking forward to almost every fight on it. I expect Forrest v Tito to be one of the LESS exciting fights on this card!
Hope Tito shows up looking like a madman, In terrific shape and willing to slaughter!!! would be sick...
I'm actually not too jazzed about this card.
Tito and Forrest doesn't feel like a super-fight, as Ortiz is coming out of retirement, and Griffin is coming off the worst loss of his career. I suppose it'll still be pretty good, but I feel like it's lacking some magic. Maybe watching the countdown will hype it up?
Koscheck and Johnson, another sort of gatekeeper fight. Both have done well, but aren't exactly big draws. Haven't heard anything of Koscheck for while, and I didn't even know Johnson existed until he came in 6 lbs overweight for his last fight a month ago.
Amir and Baroni is probably the best fight on the card. Amir is looking to get his career started in earnest, and Baroni is trying to keep his from ending. Should be interesting.
Cane and Lil Nog is cool, but Rogerio will forever live in Big Nog's shadow. Shame, really.
Karo and Hazelett sounds good at first, but then I realized Karo's been injured forEVER, then was suspended for painkillers after that. I'm as big a Karo fan as they come, but I feel like he's been out of the picture for far too long.
Ortiz vs Forest is pretty much a must win fight for both guys so Im predicting this could actually be a classic.
My monies on Forest by decision.
Just heard Dana White tweeted that Parisyan dropped out and won't be fighting for UFC in the future. Anyone hear anything about that?
Looks like Karo Parisyan is out of UFC 106.
Too bad I was looking forward to that fight
EDIT:Removed the link because Nightowl beat me to it.
